Raising an adopted child
« on: September 19, 2014, 10:35:49 am »
what will you do in this situation?

background on adopted child
- the a child (girl) is the biological daughter of a 1st cousin
- the child is with us since 2 y.o.  child is now 7
- child regularly sees her siblings (except for 1 who was also adopted by a ninang) during Christmas and New Year. 
- sometimes sees her biological mother.  calls her Mama D
- once asked my sister why she has 2 Mama, while we (my sister and us siblings) has only 1
- studies in an all-girls private school
- a happy well-loved child

background on biological mom
- the biological mother has, in all 5 kids (soon to be 6 in Nov), from 5 fathers
- single
- does not know who the father of the child with us
- occasionally does drugs
- the eldest (10 y.o boy) is being raised by grandparents
- the 2nd child (another boy) was adopted by a ninang.  the 3rd child is the one with us
- 4th and 5th children (both boys) are with the mother
- the 6th is another girl. 
- profession:  GRO

what will you do?  will you be open with the child about her biological family?  what's the right mindset to instill in the child?  I sometimes worry how she'll react to her biological family, her mom in particular, pag laki nya.  I worry that people will judge her because of her background

The girl needs to know where she came from and what is her background. If you won't tell her now, she will raise and starting digging herself to find out about her family and siblings.
