Earlier this week, the Joint Council on International Children’s Services (JCICS) posted a question on their Facebook page that got us thinking, and we thought we would pose it to our readers. On Mother’s Day, many adoptive families honor their child’s birthmother. Does your family do something similar for birthfathers on Father’s Day? If not, why not? Is it too difficult to explain the concept of a birthfather to younger children? How do you get your children thinking about their birthfathers?
Many of us have struggled with this issue, and we look forward to hearing how you handle it. Please join the conversation and let us know!
