Many are adopted child and many couples and individuals has adopted child. If you have an adopted child are you going to reveal to them that they are only your adopted child? or you will hide it to her/him? For me NO I will not hide I will really tell her/him that she/he is my adopted child and then I will tell the truth why.Anyway even they are only adopted child if they really feel the real love that you gave to her/him they will not trade you to anything else or somebody else. How about you if you have adopted child what will you do? you will tell her/him that they are your adopted child or not?

If I adopted a child, yes I would tell them. But, I wouldn't think of them as "only" adopted. They would be my child, as much as if I gave birth to them myself. I would tell them the full story of how I came to adopt them, and then stress that there's difference in my feelings for them.

Like you if I had an adopted child I would let him/her know that she/he is adopted. As long as he can understand already what adopted really means it would be easier to explain it to them. I wouldn't hide it from them and if they want to look for their real parents I wouldn't stop them from doing so. They will eventually find out sooner or later so why not tell them already rather than them hearing about it from somebody else. It's true that if you raised them well they wouldn't leave you and that would be where you should hang on.
