"Im born in Korea"

Thank you for your support on this topic I posted last week as my heart was pretty heavy about it..praying Id have the right answers and maybe my heart was just a little saddened thinking about it. Also just a topic that we know as she gets older may have more specific questions. At preschool last week she was wondering if one of her classmates was born in Korea too :-).  We know that now is the time to be open about it and start talking!! We were blessed by the foster family to have over 300 photos from her birth until the time she came to be with us at 8 months old. I have them all in a special album and we look at the pictures when she decides to get them out and page through them. We do talk about her foster family in Korea and what a special family they are.  The topic of her birth parents just has not come up, but I realize that that will come from me, I need to talk about it with her.   After talking with many of you I feel comfort in just being natural about it and the need to bring it out now to keep it "normal" conversation that she can feel comfortable to have at any time ...Yet for now keeping it more simple for 3. So thank you for your responses, I need the support and very much appreciate it !! 
Im putting together a picture memory book of her life from birth where I can talk about her birth mommy, her foster family, and coming to be with us her forever family .... I think photos are a great way to tell a story. Her story is special and beautiful !!
