I Sometimes I Feel Like I'm Adopted Even Though I'm Not

    Always Opposite

    Especially with my mom because it seems like everything I think & feel is the complete opposite of what she thinks or feels. Like if I'm hot she's cold. Or if she wants to go there I don't. But most of the time I don't say so because for some reason me disagreeing with her makes...

    I Sometimes Wish I Was Adopted...

    The only similarity I have with my parents is my physical appearance. Anyone who has heard about my parents and then gets to know me, asks me how I got to be so different from them. =/ I think differently, I behave differently, I perceive the whole world waaayyy differently than...

    1 Out Of 5

    I've always felt like, not quite an outcast, but the odd man out of the group when it came to my family. I'm the only one that has a fascination with science, the only one who smokes green, the only one that doesn't drink, the only one who is socially akward and would rather...

    Even When I Was Little...

    I used to ask my mom if I was adopted... but we look too much alike, so that's a definite no, and always has been. I feel like I don't know half of me, which is true... I don't. What about my father? I always had his last name, but didn't know such a man existed until I was 12...

    I Don't Fit In With My Family

    They try to make it seem like I do, but to anyone with eyes it's clear that I don't belong. I'm a geek, they're sports nuts. I'm laid back, they're always frazzled. They always want to go on vacations, I just want to relax. Things like these (and many more) make me wonder if I...

    It Started Long Ago

    For no real reason, or maybe the silences, the unsaid, and the lies in the family. I saw my birth  certificate hundreds of time. My mother is my mother on it, and my father is the one my mother was married to when I was born. I know there're 50% of chances he...

    I Actually Am Adopted.

    I don't mean to insult anyone here or upset anyone. But being adopted and "wishing you were adopted" or even saying "i feel adopted" are separate things. I'm just gonna be honest, if you aren't adopted you will never know what it feels like to truly be adopted. It's like if you...
