Get the blood samples of your parents and yourself and give it for DNA test. Also check hospital records (hospital where you were born).

You can do a dna test with a hair, so you dont need blood. But why do you think that you are adopted?

This like doubts should not come to a baby as his/her mom undergoes lot of pains to get out he/she to this world. Anyhow if you doubt about your parents then I prescribe you DNA test.

if you are over 18 you have the right to go into your records and check to see if you are adopted or not. Start with the hospital you were born at and see if they have any record of you there.

This is what I was going to say. I believe that in North America, at the age of 18 you can request such information from the birth/land registry office. Another option is to ask your family doctor. Anything you two speak about is confidential, so you don't need to worry about relatives finding you out, and your doctor would (obviously) know if you were the natural child of your parents. If you had to, you could say that you require your parents' medical histories for medical insurance application or something similar. Beyond that, I don't know if you feel comfortable talking to your parents directly, but if you were adopted, I can't imagine that they would be naive enough to think that you wouldn't eventually find out, and perhaps they are "waiting for the day" when you broach the subject. Whatever the situation and whatever the outcome, you'll have to keep us informed!

First I want to ask you a question why you want to know that and one more question what intended you to ask you such a question?

God! I am very very sorry! No mother or for that matter no lady can treat her like that. I think I have my own doubts. Why don't you turn to your father, sit and have a long talk with him. If you are studying, complete it, get a job, get independent first, before you can think of anything else.

I have to wonder what makes you think you may be adopted. If you have good reason talk to your parents. If this is to difficult, speak with a trusted family member. Just be thougtfull of your parents, I'm sure they love you very much adopted or not.

That was a long post but very interesting. Yes you should tell your love one's you love them. I don't think my husband came from a loving family because they are not close at all. And he is not that affectionate, I think it came from not being close with his family. And we have been married 11 years.

I think you should well prepare yourself before you really go for it because no matter what's the outcome you will have to face it. maybe it is good to seek some advice from someone you can trust.....once you find out the true are you ready to face it? anyway good luck to you!

U want to know that you are the real daughter to your parents? U can ask your parents where ur birth date is registered, then u can find wheather u are real daughter or adopted, if u r real then the certificates issued by the authorities must be with your parents, else u can make an enquiry at the birth registration office, or u can take a dna test. But it is necessary to your parents also. Why do u need all these things, u have parents. Then forget the unwanted things and share your love wit your parents. Don't go for any tests or verifications. It may affet your parents. Take a good decision.

Have you checked your birth certificate? It should be on file in the city you were born in. I believe (not 100% on this) that your birth certificate does not change even after you are adopted.

How old are you? If you are over 18 you could go to a hospital and make DNA tests (It's not illegal to go and make dna tests if you are under 18, but I don't think those from the hospital would take you seriously if you are a kid coming to the hospital alone. But there is another way, too. But you have to be over 18, because then it's illegal. I asked this question, too, some time ago. And someone answered me that I can go to the adoption center or something like that, and you can see if your name is there, if you are adopted, and I think you can find out who your real parents were, too. I hope this helps!

Why do you have doubt on your identity? You don't think that your parents aren't your biological parents? And you think that you are adopted somehow? I hope that is not a truth. That will be sad to know that your real parents forgo you and let someone adopt you.

There are many parental search agencies you can utilize, however if the records were sealed I am afraid this is not going to be an easy task. As for the DNA you are right, unless your parents are consenting you will not be able to do it. But I do know there are some private agencies that can help you with this, I am also afraid to say that it will cost you a great deal of money, but if you are determined you will find a way. Best of luck and I do hope that after five years you settled this issue.

They sell those at home DNA tests and you dont even really have to tell them what you are doing its as easy as getting a hair sample from each of them and mailing it in. Good Luck and I hope you find the answer you are looking for.

Just live happily ever after with your family, no need to check anything. If it's proven you're their child, nothing will change. If it's proven otherwise, what're you gonna do? If it's the case you should be grateful a couple actually has grown you -who's not their anyone- up until now. DNA test isn't cheap, you'll be wasting much of your time, money, energy for this. Just a suggestion my friend. Many things should just be kept secret =D
