There's so many stories about newborn adoptions so I was curious about couple's who take in older kids and if there were other kids like myself who got adopted as a young kid rather than as a newborn or toddler. I was raised by my bio-mom for the first 4 years of my life, according to court records my bio-dad attempted to get custody but the judge always ruled in favor of my mom. When I was 4 my mom basically got rid of me, I was passed around through grandparents and aunts and uncles for about a year before CPS took me and I spent 3 years in foster care before my mom signed over her rights and then like a miracle within about 3 months I was placed with amazing foster parents who almost immediately decided to adopt me - making me the oldest of 4 and now I have a total of 7 younger siblings. I love my family and couldn't imagine being raised by anyone else. I even reconnected with my bio-brother and bio-dad.Answer Question
