Congratulations on your adoption! Your parents chose you and I think what they would appreciate more than anything is you communicating to them about your day and what is happening in your life.
Congratulations for being adopted. This is very exciting for you. I suggest that you write them letters about how you feel and who you are. You don't have to give the letters to them, they can be just for you. Or you can give them the letters, it's up to you. Writing will make you more comfortable and help you to open up to them. Best wishes. xx
Just for clarification, why does your registration say "18-21", but you say that you are "Im 12" with this posting?
You've received super advice already. So many kind, caring comments. Let me add:
Consider listening very closely to each of your parents. Study them and focus on them. If you begin to understand them better, you will feel more secure, and can decide how much and what of yourself to share. Be patient. It takes time to build trust, and to grasp what someone is like within themselves as they share it. Be very aware of exhibiting good manners, and acts of service that build bonding with them. Do not take out past hurts and rejection on them. They are your answer because they brought you in, rather than your problem. Take initiative to be intentional, rather than reacting to when you own desires are crossed. Seek to understand, before seeking to be understood.
It wont be easy and will take time..I'm amazed by your asking for help, it's very mature of you. Talking about it may help, if not a councilor than a friend- no one should be alone at a time like this.
Lucky you! They chose You!! Just start talking..with one or both in a private area...maybe go for a walk...and just let your heart out. These ppl will not hurt you and you can be sure they love you and would love nothing more than you to confide in them....just start and the words will follow...all the best....
Sorry, wrong topic.
difficult. I'd say sit with them and start by asking whether they would be OK with open discussions. They'll probably be so happy that you want to talk they'll jump at it and say yes. With an opening like that you should be able to open up a bit at a time.
Remember they probably feel strange as well and may be looking for ways to talk to you, by making the first move you take pressure of them and you score the brownie points
Take your sweet time doing so.good luck!
And you re so mature for your age.take a good care of yourself.
