The vast popularity of people adopting a child is increasing by the day. Although, adopting a child is not an easy job no matter the circumstances that led to it. Some parents take this decision as it is a thing of joy to them and the adopted child. A legal custodian/guardian who is responsible is allowed the right to adopt a child.
Reason people adopt: there are so many reasons as to why a lot of people see adopting as a necessary option. Couples take this decision when it’s been confirmed they can’t have children medically, the next thing that comes to mind There are singles that don’t wish to get married but love to have a child. And in this regard its either they get pregnant/impregnate or, they resort to adopting a child. But the question now is when is the best time to disclose such a big secret?
I would say there is never the best time to tell, the reason is that there are some occurrences that will lead to the disclosure of this big secret. In most cases, the departure of either the parent will reveal the true identity of the child.Let’s take for example, in a recent article, a year and some month old child was adopted, nurtured and taken care of by his adopted parents until he graduated from the university. When told about his true identity, he felt devastated and left the house in anger with a vow to locate his real parents but how will he find them? Point is, the main purpose of adopting is to make them feel the love their biological parents couldn’t give to them then why spoil the joy, and love they have for you by spilling the beans? It's not a bad idea to disclose this big secret but, one must be careful not to lose the child’s love and trust.
when you show them love it will be very difficult to believe that you are not their biological parents but when you start maltreating them even without being told, they will have the feeling that you are not their parent by birth.
