My mom told me I was adopted when I was around 11-12 years old. Once she told me, I went straight to my room, and cried. I didn't know how to react, I was just shocked. So, I guess my mom decided to let me know, after she watched a soap opera about some girl who's adopted, and later, found her biological mother. Maybe, if it wasn't for that soap opera, my parents wouldn't have let me know, until later. I'm now 17, about to be 18 on Oct. My mom said that my dad (biological) was older than my mom (biological), they made "love", and I guess once he would out she was pregnant, he had left her. She also said that my mom tried to kill me, but I was already big. And my parents (now) gave my mom (biological) some money to go back to where she lives and be with her mom. She said she didn't tell her mom. Idk if I should even believe this, they've never met my biological parents. They adopted me while I was 3 months old, malnourished etc. It wasn't till I was 4-5 years old until they took me to Guam with them (paper work was finished). What they did was wrong, that's Not cool! The people who say if they treated you right, it shouldn't really bother you. They don't know why it's like finding out you're adopted. Being treated right, but being lied to for years ... that's not okay. I'm sorry they had to do you like that :( Keep your head up! You're an adult, you can get out, if you want.
