Is there any???
I am. how did you find out???
ever considered finding your biological parents?
and confused me a bit.
I'm not completely dense.
I am not adopted.
How did you find out you were adopted?
my mother was being interviewed for a job and it was recorded on vhs. My sister and me thought it would be great to watch it. When my mam was asked how many kids she had she said "two through adoption, thanks be to god"
but I want to know more about you please!
How did you feel when you found that out? Did you tell her you knew straight away? Do you want to find our biological parents? Were you a baby when they adopted you? TELL ME EVERYTHING!
My mother does not know that i know that i am adopted. I was a baby alright when I was adopted, not sure exactly what age.
really felt for that little kid, she kind of reminded me of myself when i was a child. I wasnt adopted though and she had a really hard time with being shifted about and abusive original family. It was great to raise more awareness with that show. I've always considered adopting later in life when im settled and stable.
(ive no idea whats going on)
i suspect a ginger beard here
After his adopted father died (his last living parent) he decided to track down his mother. He basically just wanted to let her know that he was happy and has had a great life... he worried that the not knowing may be a sadness that she took to the grave. I love my Dad.
Anyway, so they met and are now in contact. I've yet to meet her, and sadly may never get to as she is starting to lose her marbles a bit now.
All in all, he's really glad he found her and met her - although I'm sure that's not always the case.
On the other side odof the coin, I would love to adopt, and I'd like to think I'd be open with the child about its biological parentage.
my adopter gran and grandad are both dead now but he's never made any effort ( as far as I know) to find out about his 'real' parents.
i think i would, i'd like to know a bit more about where my genes come from - i don't feel like i can do it if he doesn't want to know tho.
My mum always says that she was adopted, my sister laughs. I'm all like 'dude, your mum is saying you're adopted, you don't look or act like anyone in your family'.
...'but it's okay though because this is your read dad (picture of man with massive face) and he's a billionaire! Mam wants you out the house.'
MY FACE ISN'T EVEN THAT BIG
had an older sister who'd was given up for adoption before they were born.
They spent a fair bit of time trying to find her. When they located her, she was in a nursing home about four miles up the road.
They made contact with her explaining that they just found out she existed and they're really sorry that they never knew her. She wrote them a letter back saying "yeah, I'm 90. Not really looking for any new sisters. Hope you're well."
I bet she's ace.
What difference would that make when applying for a job?
She used to get really sad on her birthday :(
In terms of the whole nature vs nurture thing, I always found it interesting that her biological mother was a 16 yr old Irish runaway, but her adoptive parents were the most RULE BRITANNIA people ever, and she turned out just like them
Not at all modern.
his biological father left my grandmother when my dad was still a baby. she remarried a few years later and her new husband adopted my dad.
i've always been really curious about this. i have no interest in meeting this guy's family (one of my great aunts told us that he later remarried and had more children), but i'd like to know about his health history and whatnot. my mom found out that he died when he was still fairly young.
would quite like to find out who her real family is tbh. My brother tried once apparently and failed miserably.
from birth, always known.
Keep kind of meaning to seek out my birth-parents but never bothered to make the effort, though my parents are fully supportive if I want to. Probably will make motions towards it when I move back to the UK.
