There is a difference between celebrating adoption and discussing your child's personal information. Family and friends do not need to know details about your child's birth family or story of how they came into your care. The problem is that you can never take that information back once it is released. Your child has no say in how that information is spread. You are not only breaching the privacy of your child but the privacy of the birth family.

You can easily celebrate adoption without discussing personal information about a child's history.
