I was adopted at 3 days old and know almost nothing about my birth mother, only that she was very, very young and was shipped off to a religious home for “wayward girls” to give birth to me.  While I would not have any issue with her contacting me, I’ve made no attempt to contact her; I just don’t need to go tracking down someone who is, for all intents and purposes, a stranger, potentially stirring up years of mixed emotions or painful memories.  My mother did a fantastic job of raising me as a single mother, after my father passed away when I was very young. She’s the only Mom I need.

I am also an adopted bee! I was sick when I was born so I wasn’t placed with my parents until I was 2 or 3 weeks old. 

My parents told me my whole life I was adopted. It was opened and accepted by all of my friends and family and I was thankful I always knew. 

I grew up in a blessed home. My parents spoiled my brother and I rotten. We went on vacations and had every opportunity you could imagine. 

I knew very little about my birth parents until I was older and my parents showed me the notes given to them from the adoption agency. There were no details about my biological father, but quite a bit on my mother.  Similar to DancingDiva, my mother had a one night stand. She was very young and wanted a life of opportunity for me. I’m forever grateful for that. 

I recently reapplied for an updated medical history. My biological mother obliged, but wants no contact with me. I’m ok with that! I love my family and am blessed to have a supportive husband. 

I am proud of who I am and proud to have the parents I have been blessed with.

  • Wedding: October 2015

I was adopted from Romania when I was a year and a half old. My parents were always very open with me (most) about my family and what little they knew.

My birth mom was 18 when she had me. My birth father was a waiter in a Bucharest Resturant and they were planning on getting married ( though there is not father’s name on my birth cert. When I was 12 I found out I have a younger brother ( full brother)

Throughout the years, up until about 1996, my birth mother would send us letters and pictures.

In 2004, we got an email fron my birth-mom’s younger brother. He had tracked us down to let us know that my Birth-mother had passed away in the early 2000s from lung cancer.

 

I was not able to speak with him further for almost 4 years, I just could not preocess it all until then. I ‘m obviously very sad I’ll never meet my birth-mother, but I have so many relitives and people who care about me that I never knew about!!
