I was adopted when i was under one to the greatest people out there. I didn't find out until i was 21 that i was adopted. Of course there were clues (like no photos except for a passport pic at age 1) and how i didn't look like them. I also know that being adopted from India i will never be able to find my birth mom. This has me very confused. I try not to think about it but since i had my first child a couple of years ago (almost four) i can't help but wonder more and more bout my birth family.
The worst is, the older i get the more i wish to know who she was. Is there a reason for it? I know i will never be able to find her but every time i see a special on tv i look at the women and wonder if any of them could have been my mom...
Will i ever be able to get over this? Do other adopted children feel this way? How do I deal with the feelings i am having?

So cindy404 why aren't you searching? Some birth moms think they have no right to search and that if the adoptee wants them then they should search. But, If you think about it from their point of view, you were the one that left, you should be the one that comes back. Plus they've already been rejected once, it's a lot to ask them to risk rejection again. Much better that the bmom gets rejected than the adoptee.
