Changing a child’s birth date
That’s the title of for a thread on a recent adoption forum site.
Yes, you read correctly the subject of discussion on an adoption thread.
The family in question had apparently adopted a boy who had been abandoned.
So the actual date of when he was born is uncertain.
They told us Jan 11 2002.
We are considering changing his birth date to July 11 2002 because:
– I am a January child and hated it. I never had birthday parties in the summer (I know we can always move the parties to the summer …)
– he is developmentally behind, so a later birth date might benefit him re. kindergarten, school etc. etc.
– we can’t really verify when his birthday is
I assume they are the authorities of whichever Country or state in which the child, which they adopted, was born.
