What would you do if you learn that you are an adopted child?

December 7, 2006 12:59am CST
I have a friend that when she discovered that she is only an adopted child, she stow away despite the good treatment of her foster parents and siblings. I pity her 'cus she is very depressed and can't accept it after a month already. I hope that she recovered already from the anxiety and all mixed emotions bothering her. If you are that person what would you do?

i will never do something that will get me in trouble. what could be worst than living in the streets? running away from your family(the one who brought you up will not help at all) it is always better to ask them about when or why or how they got you.

i do not think i can do anything, if i came to know that i am an adopted child, but i think i will try to find who were my real parents.

yes, it should be the first right mission to do upon knowing the fact and one day to still keep good relationship with foster parents.

Look for my real parents, maybe? There's nothing wrong with being adopted as long as you were loved by the family who took you in. I would even be grateful because I might not be as lucky if I grew up with my real parents. I guess God made it that way.

Maybe I will a little bit upset for it is really hard to accept maybe you should talk to your friend that she is lucky because her poster parents love her so much that she cant even noticed that she is a adopted.
