How Our Family Talks About Adoption

The important thing, in our minds, is to welcome any and all conversation about Korea, because we are open about his history. We, like he, tell stories of his upbringing (simplified and age-appropriate, of course) so that he knows where he came from, and to be proud of his heritage and culture.
Our stories are more abstract at this age, but they will grow more detailed as he gets older, and as his understanding of his origin grows along with it.
We can only hope that, as the amalgam of memory, speech, sense impressions, language, continued cultural experience and influence continue to shape-shift in his big / little remarkable brain, the best feelings about his story will emerge victorious.
