Sometimes People Just Don't Understand..

I have the most amazing adoptive family in the world. I love them with all my heart and I wouldn't trade them for anything. But I have no information about my biological parents whatsoever. We know nothing about their heritage or anything. I feel like theres a part of me missing because I don't know anything about it. All of my friends know about their background and heritage and family history, while I know nothing. I feel as if I don't have "roots". I've tried forever to find out more about my biological family, but its so hard! Sometimes I feel really sad whenever I think about this (like when we're talking about it in school) and when my friends ask my whats wrong and I tell them, they brush it off like its something trivial and dumb. My adoptive parents don't get it either, they think I'm fine. I feel like no one will ever understand how I feel and how bad I want to know about that "missing part" of me.
