When it comes to adoption many people are saddened about it or others sometimes laugh at the fact that someone is adopted. I'm here to tell you my story and how being adopted has affected my life for the better.
I am now 15 years old and I'm happy that I'm adopted. Since I was little my parents always told me that I was adopted and that my birth-mom loved me unconditionally. In my 6 year old head I was thinking that's awesome because now I have two parents that love me, now that I'm 15 I still think the same. My adoption was a closed adoption which means I can't have contact with my birth-parents until I turn 18. With that I have only met my birth-mother once when I was about three years old. Many people ask me if I plan to find my birth-mom in the future, and my answer is always yes. I hope to one day give her a big hug and thank her for being so selfless and brave.
