10 Things Adoptees Want You to Know

Number 5

We're halfway through.

Don't tell us to be grateful to our parents.

Since when has wanting to know one's history and where one came from become a hindrance affecting gratefulness?

Are all genealogists adoptees? No. So why can they seek out their roots of past generations but when we do it, it's interpreted as being ungrateful?

We are grateful, in fact many times, very grateful but we also have and want the right to know who we really are, where we really came from. Our roots. Our heritage.

Here's something to think about - our DNA know it all - but we don't. Nice thought! So what's so harmful if we knew?

Thoughts on this please.
