This may be a weird question. How often do you think of the fact that you were adopted? With me some days it crosses my mind and others I don't even think about it.

Are you talking about people who were actually adopted, or people wondering if they were adopted? When I was younger, I did wonder from time to time if I had secretly been adopted by my parents. As I grew older, it became clear to me that I physically resembled my parents in too many ways to NOT be adopted, so I haven't wondered about it for several years.

Some days the fact crosses my mind more than others. Although I look very much like my mom, I was adopted....though a first glance you would never have guessed it. I think it's just that part of me that wonders why or if my biological parents are still alive. I think it's normal for adopted kids to wonder/have question. I know I did when they told me.


I am perfectly imperfect, beautiful in my flaws, chaotic, fearless...a beautiful disaster.

Sorry, I should've been more specific. This thread is for people who were adopted, but thanks for your reply.

I can totally relate to that. My mom and I have a similar look to us, so people are surprised to hear that I'm actually adopted, but when they see my dad they know that I was adopted :P. I too always wonder if my birth parents are still alive, I used to believe that my birth mother was dead, but I try to be positive and think that she's still alive. When were you adopted?.
