Who does this? What is wrong with people? Why keep it a secret just tell your kid! If they grow up knowing they are adopted it is no big deal. It is like some people are blond some people are dark haired. But if you keep it a secret it turns into this big deal your child feels betrayed how many other secrets did you keep.  Step up people sheez!

You should always tell your kids they are adopted.  I have a cousin who started out in the family as a foster child.  She came to my aunt and uncle as a toddler and the state apparently forgot about her.  They raised her as their own and she never knew until she was 10 and the state suddenly remembered her.  So at 10 she found out that she wasnt theirs not even through adoption.  They did adopt her but it completely screwed up her life for several yrs and was estranged from her parents for awhile.

Hair color and eye color are controlled by many different genes. It isn't just an "on or off" in all cases

My in-laws have 5 adopted kids out of the 8 they have, all the adopted ones they told them from birth some of them even know who their birth moms are. They all know they are loved just the same, I don't get why you wouldn't tell your child. If we ever adopt any children I will be telling them from the time they are little.

You don't understand the reasoning behind the parents not wanting to tell her. Don't be so quick to judge what you don't know.
