In the car...in the kitchen...at bedtime...it can happen when you least expect it - your child asks you a question about adoption and you don’t know how to answer it. As much as you prepared for this, when it actually happens it can be very difficult.
Maybe you haven’t talked about adoption yet, the answer is tough to hear or you just don’t have enough information to answer your child’s questions. But your answer matters. Talking matters.
