Here are some suggested organisations that offer expert advice on adoption.

Parents to birth children who have also adopted, can my DD ask your birth DD a question or two, please?

Can't work out how to PM you easily from the app so answering on here as I'm on my phone! Also can't read the questions once I've started replying so if my replies seem out of joint I've remembered the question wrong!

1) I think I was about 7 or 8 when my little sister joined our family. I remember visiting her at her foster family but she was only a toddler and just sat there and smiled. We got along quite well but she could occasionally be annoying. No more than any other sibling though!

2) I think there were times when I wanted my Mum and Dad to myself, but it was great to have sisters to play with.

3) I don't have any memories of nasty things my sisters did. My brother cut the hair off my doll once but that's brothers for you!

4) Yes, definitely lots of fun!

I have 3 adopted siblings and I was a birth child, I can answer your DD's questions if you like?! I'm 33 though....

Would you like some older teenagers to answer also, or just the little ones?

I'd love a meet up, will think of some possible dates, or if you are ever around my way.

OK, she was away for the weekend, but has now PM'd your dd. Short but sweet, given her age - if you think your dd would ever benefit from a phone conversation or a meet-up, she would probably be more expansive!

Thanks so much.... up late as usual!

Devora Thu 30-May-13 00:26:50

Well, you knew I'd answer!

I'll get my dd to respond to your dd tomorrow...

I told my birth DD (aged 8) that I know some people who have (a) birth child/ren who have also adopted as well. My DD was keen to ask someone's birth child about the experience of having a new sibling who had been adopted. Please do message me if you birth DD would be willing to answer any of these questions for my DD. Any messages sent to me will be kept private by me and not posted on here. They are just to help my DD adjust to the idea of a new sibling (which she is very excited about).

1) Do you get along
2) Are there any bad things about having a new sibling
3) Do they do anything not very nice?
4) Is it fun having a new sibling

Thanks so much.
