Dear #Parents, This is so true. While you may not initiate #adoption questions with your child all the time- you will be the one who begins the conversation by honestly and age-appropriately sharing your child's story with them. YOU are the one that will create an open-door policy for them to ask questions and feel comfortable coming to you with their feelings. If you create this environment of love and acceptance and willingness to listen to their feelings without judgement or hurrying them or dismissing them then you are laying the groundwork for them to come to you about #adoption or about anything that is affecting them or their life. No one ever learned anything new by talking- it will be by listening that you learn what is truly on your child's mind and in their heart.
