It's official now

Why you should tell about the adoption to your child?

Personally, I've always advocated that adoptive parents must disclose and discuss about the issue of adoption with their children but never had any authoritative data to prove my argument. Well....that's history now.

At University of Southern Queensland, Australia, a study was done on 144 adult adoptees of 18 - 66 years of age which is published in the family relationship quarterly (issue number 5) shows that it does affect the adoptive children adversely when they come to know about their adoption at a later stages of their life.
