Did My Birthparents Love Me?
One of the questions that adoptive parents are often asked by their children is whether or not their birthparents loved them. Many people have different thoughts on this subject, since very few of us know the absolute facts surrounding our children’s abandonment.
How do you answer this question when asked?
- I tell them that their birthparents most definitely loved them.
- I tell them that someone loved them enough to get them to a safe location to be found and taken to the orphanage.
- I tell them, “I don’t know.”
- I have not yet had to discuss this question with my child.
