Yay! I wish you all the best of luck. I understand the adoptee's side of the story, and if you have any issues, please let me or anyone know. I'm certain we would all be willing to help. best of luck and fond wishes!
I can completely agree! I was adopted at the age of two years, and I know that I may have been raised by "strangers", but I love them as if they were my biological parents. They have always considered themselves to be my "real" parents and I couldn't agree more with them. They have helped me through a lot of tough times and even when anxiety was cranked up, they just supported me and told me what I needed to hear. My life has been ok, just a lot of emotional issues I need to figure out, but most all of them are linked to knowing nothing about my biological father and little to nothing about anything medically that could be helpful in the long run. Just wanted to put that out there. View Thread
