When I Was 12, My Parents Told Me....

..... that I'm adopted. Stepparent adoption, specifically. My mom is my birthmom, she married my stepdad when I was 2, and then he went through the adoption process to give me his last name, then didn't tell me anything about it until I was 12.

I cant inagine what you must have felt.

I think if your step father loves you and takes care of all his paternal responsibilities, you should not think too much about this. Tell your self that he is first your mother's husband and your mother married him because she thought it was the best thing to do.<br />
Love and understanding is more important than it being a blood relationship. How many people in the world are happy with their parents?

awe this must have been hard
