Creating your identity is a constant process. I'm sure that being bounced around from foster home to foster home isn't helping you, but that doesn't mean you have to feel "stuck" or "trapped" in your development, if that makes sense. Most teenagers feel disconnected at some point from their family members, whether they're biologically related or adoptive. It's a struggle to separate ourselves from other people, to determine what makes us "US", versus "THEM". I'm not sure what advice I can offer you, other than reassuring you that one day, you'll become secure in your identity. It may take a while, but it's going to happen. You'll find a purpose in life and go for your goals with a passion you never thought was possible. Look forward to that day! I know it's hard right now, when you're in the foster care system and worrying about the future, but I promise things will improve someday.
