I worry that my daughter is going to grow up feeling unwanted because she is adopted. Of course, she is very wanted, my husband and I love her more than anything...I would just like to hear from some other adoptees, are you content with your life? Do you love your adoptive parents? Do you want to or have you met your birth family?

I was adopted at three months old. It is the best thing that ever happened to me. My adoptive Parents are my "real" parents. My adoptive family is my "real" family. I do not ever remember finding out that I was adopted - I just always knew. I know that my birth Mother & Father give me the BEST present anyone could have given me and my Parents. My Parents tried for years to have a baby, with no luck. I know that I am incredibly blessed to have the BEST Parents in the world.
One thing that my parents started was honoring the adoption date as an Anniversary for us. We get Anniversary cards for each other (I am now 35), I get roses delivered to me at my work from them, and we go out for dinner. (I honestly thought that was what all adoptive families did to celebrate the occasion - I recently found out that is not the case.)
