PBS Kids GO! It's My Life
Adoption

Discussion questions for kids to bring up with adults

General Questions:

Do we know any adoptive families or foster families?

Have you ever thought about adopting a child? Why or why not?


If You're Adopted:

What, if anything, do you know about my birth parents?

Why did you want to adopt a child? Why me in particular?

What do you remember about the time when you adopted me?

What do I bring to this family that you wouldn't have if you hadn't adopted me?

Can I always be honest with you about how I feel?

If I even feel the need to contact my birth parents, or just learn more about them, will you help me do that?

If I want, can we join a group specifically for adopted kids, so I can share my story with others who will understand?
