What will you do when you know that you are adopted child?

March 19, 2008 2:34am CST
My uncle and my auntie adopted a child and he's a teenager now. He is my cousin and they really love him despite from the fact that my cousin didn't know that he is an adopted child. What if my cousisn will eventually know that he's adopted? Will he find his biological family or just stay with his foster parents?

Well they ARE NOT his "foster" parents..they are LEGALLY his PARENTS (aka adopted parents) and when he is old enough he may want to seek out his biological family and he may not...HOWEVER if he does that DOES NOT MEAN he doesnt love his adopted parents by any means...We are curious..we need answers..answers to things that biological kids take total advantage of IMO....Thats not a bad thing and knowing our history is our right and we should never be denied that right..

it is human nature to try to know his biological family.i don't think that he'll leave the foster parents

yes i know but i think it's very complicated for him to find his true biological parents though my uncle and auntie has no idea where are his biological parents now.
