We’ll have to tell Ru-Jun the truth soon. She has a classmate in daycare who is adopted and has always known and they have talked about it. Today she mentioned him and insisted “But I know I’m not adopted.” Shian-Ren wasn’t there (this was in the car on the way home) so I wasn’t going to say anything new. So I replied “There is nothing wrong with being adopted. It’s very special.” And the conversation went on to pets, which she understands in terms of adoption. If she starts talking about this a lot I think it will be time. Shian-Ren and I discussed this this evening when Ru-Jun was out of the room. The time is coming.
