Adopted in the UK
|||||Eminem - Crazy In Love||]|
I was adopted at 7 months old. It was a closed adoption, and afaik, I've never encountered any of my b/relatives since. My a/parents have never hid that I'm adopted from me, and I remember talks when I was small (~3 or 4), standing by the bath with my Mom in it, that started with the immortal line "Mom, tell me again how you got me..."
Growing up adopted was /weird/ though. I kept hearing about these abandonment issues that I must have, whenever I was doing something people thought I shouldn't be doing... even as an adult! It took me until ~the start of this year to figure out that actually no, I don't have abandonment issues; I'm just willing to bend the rules people live by to get what I want.
I'd be interested in meeting up with my b/family, if only to check on any medical history kinda stuff I should be on the look out for, and to be able to say "yeah look, it turned out well, so don't beat yourself up if you was".
And that's about as much as I can think of to say about it atm. It's not that I don't wanna talk about it or anything, just that there's not a lot to say about it any more.
