This may apply to many of you, we have never brought this up. They loose out too when a child is adopted. So to give you an example I will share my story.My dads father was a police officer, killed on duty when dad was 6 yrs old. His mum was in a wheelchair with 6 children, one of which had special needs. I found our recently for a while dad and a couple of others had to be placed in an orphange for quite a while. dad never mentioned it. His mum died a few years later. I never had the chance to get to know her.My mums mother ran away when mum was 3yrs old, she was the middle of three little girls. I was always told I had no grandparents and accepted that. her dad died from a cerebal hemerage far to young. Somehow mum traced her mum to a property on the other side of australia, never did know how. and we moved there when I was 5yrs old. There was however a promise made between them first, I was never to be told who she really was. A promise she kept all her life. Nor was she to tell me I was adopted. Kept that too. I married and moved overseas for 2 yrs, went back to visit, still not another word, that was the last time I saw her alive. Never found out till it was to late. We will talk in the next step we all take, no more secrets.
