Truth and Adoption

Would You Lie to Your Kid About Adoption?

Many adopted children are raised to believe they are the natural offspring of their parents.

Some moms and pops spring the news on the kids when they feel they are old enough to handle the truth, while others keep the secret for a lifetime.

Often there are outstanding genetic reasons for parents to openly discuss the child's birth parents.

In a rare reverse situation, New York City Fox news anchor Jodi Applegate's mother told her she was adopted when she was actually her birth child. Jodi did not know the truth until her mother passed away.

If you had an adopted child, would you be honest about his or her origin?
