2. I already said I don't know all the specifics , twice.
He is in bioligy class, what other way than a DNA test would tell him he's adopted ?
(not related to his parents?)
4. What age should a child be told they are adopted?
It isn't my kid, so its not my choice
Answer to 2. It is possible it was a BLOOD TYPING project as some types cannot be born to others.
(I just did a simple google search and type O parents cannot have a type A child, I think there are other examples of this with other type mixes but
this is a start. This is a simple lab project and easily done in HS biology class)
Answer to 4. This child should have been RAISED with this knowledge!!!! There are beautifully illustrated books out there now FOR TODDLERS that
cover this topic so it is presenting in a sensative and loving way. As in your parent Loved you enough to let you go because they didn't have the
resources to care for you, and WE Loved you enough to bring you home. We waited and prayed for you to come into our lives. ect.
This is just one major, major area where it is not in the best interest of anyone to lie. It seems to me that families that have a problem with
honestly in matters like this have other dysfunctions relating to honestly, you know skeletons, old bones. Family secrets. All it does is cause
emotional pain when the individual discovers the "truth" and now has to face the mountain of doubt about everything else. But to be at loss about
your very IDENTITY. I feel empathy for this kid.
