Tell Adopted Children Early DEAR R.Y1: The consensus of informed opinion is that adopted children should be told, early in ife, that they are adopted—that ,hey were handpicked, .with love, jy the adopting parents to be their son (or daughter). All this tempest in a teapot, now railing up in your mind, about whether to tcll"vour husband of his adopted status,', amply proves the Wsdom of getting the facts on record early. Probably the .most disturbing angle (if anyi< ; to-the':sensitive in- teJUgent adult'just learnihg.that he was an adopted child, is the mystery of .his natural .origins. He wonders just "who" he is; and vhy his natural parents didn't rear him. He may experience emotional shock, at the impact of-such unanswered questions; and have a panicky feeling that he must .find out the facts, to recover a sense of reality—to identify himself to limself, so to speak. As • you know, the usual policy of,accredited adoption agencies is o handle placements in such a way as to guarantee, .insofar as possible, abiding long-term good care if the child. To safeguard'against possible emotional changes-of-mind on the part of the natural parent, vho might try to grab back the child later on. the principals are kept apart, and don't know each other's names.
