Just curious how many bees out there were adopted? Whats your story 🙂 Where were you born and were did you end up? Were you adopted at a young age or a older age? Did you like the family you were adopted into? Have you stayed in contact with your biological parents your was it a closed adoption?
I was adopted at a very young age, I was born in Romanian and my adopted parents reside in Tampa Fl. Ive lived here ever since I was adopted and this is where I met my SO. I loved the family I got adopted into! They have been loving and supportive. They told me from the beginning that I wasnt born from my (adopted) moms tummy but they loved me the same. It was a semi open adoption so my birth mother has sent letters every couple years that we have to get translated. I dont know if Im invited her to the wedding yet :}
There is my story…any other brides out there that are adopted?

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 forgot to add…
I was a one night stand baby and when my birth mother found out she was having a baby she knew that she couldnt support me like she wanted to and give me the life that she thought I should have. I guess this is why we stayed intouch because I respected that she did that thinking what was best for me :}

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.

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!!
