OK, I gotcha.

How did your parents let her know? If you don't mind me asking that is.....

I honestly didn't know there was much shame and stuff regarding adoption. I think everyone I've met who knew they were adopted, knew from the time they were a young child.

If I hadn't been told it very frequently my entire life, I wouldn't have considered that I look like my dad.

Someone ought to have the right to know where they stand in the family.

Because everyone who is adopted had irresponsible parents.

No adopted children's parents are dead at all or anything. They're all just prom night dumpster babies right? Or no child is officially adopted by a step-parent who was already treating like their own flesh and blood. Nah. We're all just bastards whose parents didn't want them.

I'd tell them as soon as they can understand what it means. I can't see any good coming from keeping it a secret until later on.

I don't think you should be expected to. I think defining 'family' by sharing genes is lame and pretty 20th century.
wait, are sigs back?
