Last month we had a flurry of posts (including this one) about adoption talk -- how, when & why we talk to our kids about adoption and birth parents, etc.There have been some more since my last round-up, so I thought I'd put up the ones I missed then:
Brian Stuy, who started it all with the post What to Tell -- and When, follows up with this post about surveying his children about adoption talk in their household.
Adding an adoptee's perspective is Mei Ling at Shadow Between Two Worlds.
Judy shares an unfinished adoption conversation with her son at Just Enjoy Him.
And Diane at An-Ya describes the adoption conversation her daughter scheduled with her by telling her it might hurt her feelings (it didn't!).
Not my cup of tea, but click here for a video about how one woman talks to her kids about adoption from a certain religious world view. I'd be interested in hearing what others think of it.
Happy Announcement Followed by Reflections.
