Re: Gay or Lesbian Family?

As long as the children are being spoken to openly and honestly about who are the biological parents who made them and who are the caregiving parents who raise them it should be ok.

Re: Gay or Lesbian Family?

I had the same thought. Was wondering whether to bite my tongue. Wonder if the same advice would be given to a hetero couple that adopted or used egg or sperm donation to make a family possible?

Anyway, guess some ppl come in here to gawk or insert unsolicited advice. Lol.

Re: Gay or Lesbian Family?

Well, im not the pp, but I would say it is very important to let a child know they are adopted. Seems like they will find out eventually, and would be hurt if it has been a secret. Someday the child will learn their parents did not conceive them together and will have questions. Again, seems best to be open and honest, but not sure at what age to bring it up?

You realize all the parents in this thread are gay so it's inevitable that our children will know they weren't conceived by conventional methods right!?

Plus that's something that's up to the parents, whether or not how much they divulge to their children.
