Rose's thread has really gotten me thinking. For those who have been adopted, how much information would you have wanted to know about your parents and at what age would you want to know? I don't know a lot about the background of our kids (all adopted from Russia) but I do have some details. Some of it isn't that pretty though and the one child in particular doesn't seem mature enough to handle it (now 12). His is probably the most difficult info to share too which doesn't help. How and when do you fill in those details? I've shared a bit with the oldest (14) about his situation because he seemed ready to handle it and it wasn't really ugly stuff. I don't want to hide stuff but I don't want to give them more than they seem able to handle. Any thoughts?
