If you found out you were an adopted child..

What would you do if you discovered that you were actually an adopted child in the family? If your adopted parents raised you up, love and treat you up as their real child, would you try to find your own real parents? Or you just leave it as it is to respect your adopted family for what they had done in raising you all this while.

Actually i'm adopted child. No one tells me about it, I just knew that i'm adopted, I already forgot how did I knew it. My uncle adopted me because he and her wife cannot have a child. My uncle treats me well and love me like his own child but I think and I feel that his wife hates me a little bit. I also knew who are my parents. I feel jealous with my siblings because they are living with my parents and I also feel annoyed when I with my real parents every vacation because they let me called adopted by other people even they are still there for my siblings. But when the time passed I learned to accept what happened.

If I suddenly discovered that I am adopted, I will be shocked at first but I will still assure my foster parents that my love for my them will not change. I will also probably try to look for my real parents because I would still want to get to know them and because I would want to know why they gave me up.

If I found out that I had been adopted ( I am not adopted really) I would be grateful to my adoptive parents that had brought me up. I would have been happy to think they had chosen me. I think that I would wish to know the names of and the details of my birth parents. I probably wouldn't meet up with them. If I had a brother or sister that I hadn't met I probably would want to meet him or her.

If ever I am an adopted child, my origin of birth would not matter anymore if I am loved and if I love my adopted parents like my real parents. Blood doesn't make a family but your love for each other does. If ever I were to look for them, it would be for some reason...I can go to them and ask why they gave me away, but if I think about it, it would be all for nothing since I could not change what happened in the past. It's useless to dwell in what might have been with them but for me it's best to live with what I have now...Oh, yeah, it's nice to get to know them but the feelings would be different from the parents who raised me, of course!

I would have to agree with the other post. I would want to know who my parents were, just so I would be able to trace my heritage back or for any medical history I would need to know. I would be very thankful to both my original mother for giving me a better life than she felt she could give me. And I would be very thankful to the adopted mother for giving me the chance to have a better childhood. I would not be angry at either of them.

if I'm adopted, I'd want to find out who my real parents is just foor the record. The curiosity will really bugs me if it was true. I'd want to meet them since I thought they also wonder how i've been. I wouldn't be angry or mad at anyone, especially when my adopted parents raise me and treated e as their real children. I'll have no problem with that. But still, I'd like to know who gave birth to me and where did I originally came from.
