I think you will know when it is the right time. I would stress that even though you weren't in my womb, I still love you more than anything in the world. I think it would be upsetting and hard for a child to learn they are adopted. I would make sure the child was nature and emotionally ready to handle the news. If they ask about their biological mom be honest but don't give too much info and be positive. Your children look to your reactions.


The lady wanted to tell her daughter and asked me how? I was totally blown, but I told her that she will know when it's the right time if she really wanted to tell her daughter that she wasn't her biological mother.
