If you adopted a child, would you be offended if they wanted to find their biological parents?


Adoptive parents share their lives with their children and yet, they must live with the fact that at some stage, their children will seek out their biological parents. Is that a snub to the adoptive parents or is that the right of an adopted child?

    Thanks for your comment Joan. I'm sure the children would appreciate support during what would surely be an emotional time.

    Thanks for your comment and particularly, for sharing your emotions about it. It's most interesting to hear both sides of situation through one person's eyes.

    I agree - the meeting might not deliver on years of built-up expectation and anticipation. It might also be important from a medical perspective to establish if there are any developments from a health perspective that the kid needs to know about.

    I'm sure with support from their adoptive parents, they would make peace with whatever they found. Thanks for commenting :)

    Thanks for your comment. Yes, I can definitely understand that your adoptive parents might not be enthused with the idea of "other" parents - it seems some adoptive parents are troubled while others are not. Perfectly understandable either way :)

    It seems that our natural inclination as a parent would be to protect and shelter your child from potentially painful experiences, but developing into an adult or as an adult means children might experience discomfort and parents must allow that.
