I currently don't have any children and have a strong doubt that I will in the near future. Adoption is something I've always considered regardless of whether I have children or not. I was thinking about it more and more recently and I was wondering: If, for example, I were to adopt an infant and raise him/her as my own, when do you think the best time would be to reveal to the child that they aren't your flesh and blood? Do you do it when they're in their teens or earlier? Or, do you wait until they're 18 and let them know then? Either way, I know that it can be a touchy situation. If anyone has input on this, please fill a sister in.
