“We decided that we should do something after school, then she said ‘but you can’t ask you’re parents if you can because that’s not your real parents'”

That was something I heard when my sister talked in the phone. I get so angry when I hear things like that, I think she was 12 when this happened. So that girl who said that to her should know better than that. I hope that someday adoption will be a more common topic in families so that even children will know what it is. Because I know that it’s so annoying to answer these questions about adoption. What do you think?

  1. The past is mysterious, paradoxical and unfathomable to many adoptees. Relationships can be perplexing, contradictory and incomprehensible when the facts are unknown. Incongruity often leads to confusion and a solicitous sense of abandonment.

  2. Suarezgirl, Everyone feels the need to be loved. Calling attention to someone’s status as an adoptee should never be used to bully or humiliate them. Who are parents are is beyond our control. Safeguarding the mental and emotional well-being of others should be a universal priority for humanity in all cultures and societies, regardless of how a family is formed. Following the golden rule is a goal we should all strive to achieve.
