Are you adopted? By family member or outside of family?

My grandparents adopted me at 2 yrs old so have always been mom and dad to me.
I miss them. They are in heaven now.
My biological mother has always been in my life
and well, I don't stay in touch with my biological dad. I call him Tom, not dad. It ended right before I got married. My step brother gave me away.

  • I was adopted at age 4. my parents weren't fit parents at the time. I talk to my biological mother daily now and have met my brother who they had the year i was adopted. MY birth father was killed in an accident when i was 16 and my biggest regret is not going to the funeral.

    everything that happened was over 20 years ago and im giving her a second chance

  • Yes and No... My mother is my mother, but her second husband adopted me... Thankfully the third didn't.

  • My stepfather adopted my brother and myself when my mother married him, but that's kind of not the same, I guess.

  • I was adopted at the age of 13 months by amazing parents not related to me. I reunited with my bio family 13 years ago. We had a great relationship up until last year. They were very demanding of our time and energy and refused to take any reasons as why, god forbid, we could make events etc. Ummm...we have other families!! We finally had enough..called them on it and they, of course, being their self centered selves, turned it around on us...o we don't talk anymore. It hardly matters anyway...they came to visit my son once when he was born and not again until his 1st bday. They live 20 minutes from us!1
