Hello! I would feel really bad if something like that happens, but I would be grateful also that I have my own family although am an adopted child. I would never think in the way that my parents have not told me that am adopted child, instead I would think that they hid the truth that am an adopted child because they didn't want to hurt me. Whatever they did, they did it for my happiness. I would really be proud of have such parents...

That's true, sometimes behind those lies are to prevent us from being hurt. Thanks Indiavani (,")

I would be terribly upset. But it would be foolish and ungrateful of me if i would hate, scream at people who have been my achors. I would at the same time be immensely thankful and grateful to my parents (not biological)who have been so magnanimous to adopt me and bring me up. I would put them on a pedestal even higher than for my actual biological parents. I would also thank God for saving me from complete disaster. But I would certainly have a lot to complain against the actual parents were i to find them ever.

I concur with all the possible fellings that you've shared. With the foster parents I would be really thankful and would love them more.

Maybe at first I will be mad and upset specially when I only knew it when I got old like you but somehow maybe I will just ask them why did it happened and why does my true parents give me to them. But of course whenever the reasons is past is past and I should face the truth, and be thankful that I have a good life with my parents now.

I think its normal to be angry or mad if we are in that situation. And your right we should not cry over spilled milk. Thanks!

I have to say I would be very excited to hear that I was an adopted child. I grew up among family that abused me horrifically, and the idea that they are "really" my family is something that is still very hard for me to deal with. In fact, I am far more likely to refer to close friends as family members than I am to refer to my relatives that way, so it's already like I've made myself adopted in a way!

That's unusual, our family should be our shelter. But maybe there's a reason why they treated you that way. I just wish you find the care you're looking for

Everyone always has reasons why they do everything, but that doesn't make the behavior acceptable. I didn't mean to be entirely negative in my post. I do feel as if I have an adopted family now, made up of friends I have met along the way, and I also have my own family, a husband and son. So it's not that I am still searching for some kind of care that I need, but that I found it already in a place other than my biological family.
