Subject:  I am ready for this process
I was preparing myself to tell my child about adoption. This article has helped me a lot to prepare myself for undergoing this process. I think that the agencies which help parents to adopt should also provide them with these details. It will be really helpful to the parents. This is a very sensitive process and people do not know how to go about it. This article will prove to be beneficial to other parents who have adopted kids. Becoming an adoptive parent is much more difficult than becoming biological parent. The most difficult part is about telling child about adoption.

Subject:  prepare your child to face society
It is very important to prepare child to face society. Child should know what to say when people ask weird question. It is really important to tell child about answering people politely. It is better that child has an idea about how other children will react when they know about child’s adoption. It is better if the parents speak to child’s friends and their parents regarding this issue. It will be really difficult if the child misunderstands adoption. For this purpose the parents should spend time with their adopted child. And stand by him while facing these kinds of situations.

Subject:  I agree
I agree the views given here. It is always better to talk to the adopted child earlier. During early childhood it is easier for the child to accept/understand the situation. For the child, what is most important is the love that the child has been getting from his/her parents, since the beginning.

The way you have been treating your adopted child always makes a difference. It is your love for the child and the patience in dealing with him/her which will be the force behind making the relationship even stronger.

Subject:  talking to children earlier is good
It is better to talk to children earlier only. There are few people in the society who like to ruin other’s happiness. They may mislead children by telling wrong stories about their adoption. It is very necessary that only parents tell them about the adoption and not any other person. Telling children at the earlier stage makes them very familiar to this concept and easy to digest this concept. They will not react differently whenever others will throw question at them. It is a good thing that children do not have to face a dilemma when they grow up.
