i am 25 years old with a baby on the way. i was made a crown ward not long after my birth (a really strange situation), and was officially adopted at 18 months (would have been earlier had CAS not messed up on their end with loosing my papers). i lived life knowing i was adopted from the start, and i have always been grateful to my parents for not hiding the truth from me. they were supportive in my decision to try to find my biological family (CAS dragged their feet for 6 years, i ditched that course of action and went on my own and found everyone within a week of looking).
i am willing to offer answers to questions that adoptees, adopting parents, and anyone else has about ways to approach the "your adopted" talk, answer questions on basic feelings about it, and basically give a guide so that you may have the "inside info" on how an adopted person may react to anything to do with adoption.
