half siblings adopted separately
I have a question for anyone who was adopted separately from siblings or half siblings. My wife and I have adopted three beautiful children from the foster care system. They all have the same mother, and all have different dads. They are 1,2 and 3. Their mother also has four older children who are in the care of her brother until they grow up. Those four have a different dad than any of our three. There was some family pressure for him to adopt the three we have, but he really wasn't in a position to care for her seven plus his own child. While mom has issues and cannot raise her kids, we fully intend to keep track of her, and support our kids when they reach sixteen or seventeen and start demanding to find their birth mom. Any earlier contact would be too confusing, and I think, negatively impact their development. What we haven't figured out, is when to introduce them to their brothers and sisters. Do we just share pictures and keep track till they reach adulthood, or do we actually try to help them develop a relationship with them as kids. I look forward to any feedback. Thanks.
