We told my son about adopting

We had a great family conversation over dinner. We told him that we would be building our family through adoption. He had lots and lots of questions, but overall I think he is excited about it.

I tried to answers his questions as best as possible - and I was impressed about what kinds of questions.

He did not ask things like boy or girl, how old, etc. He asked very grown up questions: Like: will they have visits with their parents? - How long is the process? - Can I go to the classes also, it will help me better understand these children. - What kinds of children are in the "system"?

And my favorite - "What can I do to help"

He is really turning into a fine young man.

That just melted my heart. What a sweetheart you have clearly raised.

I think this is going to be such a tremendously wonderful journey you and your family will be starting, and to have Colin as a willing, excited participant makes it all the more wonderful and special!
