  • Do you tell the school?
  • by Eponine Last comment: Today at 06:56 AM
  • We told DS's daycare (it was a form like you describe - anything else to know), and we volunteered to come talk to the class about adoption. It really didn't come up until he hit preschool age at that daycare, but the teacher was able to use some books about different types of families and such. We didn't have that type of form when he started Kinder, but I think we told his teacher at our...

  • by Mishka007 Last comment: Yesterday at 07:45 PM
  • I am adopted and was born in Maine in 1961. The agency that handled the adoption was St. Andres in Biddeford, Maine. I sent for and received my original birth certificate in April of 2013. I researched online and found my birth mother. I also found out that I have 4 younger half brothers. It took me awhile but I sent a letter to her in July of 2013 and never heard from her. In April of 2014 I...
