Reasons to share about adoption

I was reading readers reviews of a book "Telling the Truth to Your Adopted
or Foster Child" by Betsy Keefer, Jayne E. Schooler which clearly states the
reasons for sharing the information about adoption:

1. Secrets distort Reality
2. Secrets undermine trust and intimacy
3. Secrets create exclusion and division
4. Secrets destroy authenticity
5. Secrets produce fantasies.

Keeping the truth from our children is in the worst interest of them and our
family's future. These children, we have chosen on our own to bring them in
to our lives and they deserve only the truth and truth alone.
