have you ever felt you were adopted? have you ever questioned if your mom and dad are your real parents? even as a kid.. as a baby.. it would be impossible to think that i'm adopted, because i look a whole lot alike my mom and my dad.. but they were teasing me because i'm the eldest. none of my brothers and sisters saw my mom pregnant with me.. hehehehh! how about you? have you ever felt your were adopted? either by the way you look or the way you have been treated?

when i was a kid, my sisters would always tease me that i was adopted because i am a bit dark and my sisters have glow in the dark white skin. We were 3 siblings then and i was the second. But when our youngest sister( who came 11 years after the 3rd child), my insecurity of being adopted was gone. The reason was our younger sister has also the same color as me.

most of the time, i tell my siblings that they are adopted. there was one time when my mom said that i am adopted because no one saw her gave birth to me (because im the eldest) and i saw her gave birth to my sisters and brother. but i never believed them!

I personally have never felt as if I were adopted. I look too much and am too much like my relatives to ever dream that I came from different parents. However, it is a fairly common phase that most kids go through at some point in their lives when they think they were adopted.

yup.. i do wish i am adopted at times.. i don't want other looking down at me.. just because i'm differ with them....it's really difficult to live in here especially when people think you're an immigrant.. actually i'm not an immigrant.. my ancestors are the immigrants.. i'm malaysian.. but .. people seem not to understand the fact.. i always want to be one of the major race.. atleast i get my own identity.. and i can find the girl i love.. but now.. i'm stuck.. sometimes i even feel like i won't get a gf at all.. gosh.. that's why i really hope i'm adopted.. atleast i know i don't belong here.. it's hard to admit that i belong here.. when i don't look one of the people here :(
