10 Things Adoptees Want You to Know

Number 8

Don't tell us we're special.

We were children like every other child. We're adults like all other adults. What makes us special?

Why am I special? Is it because I have two families? Not so. Non-adopted children sometimes have two or more families, thanks to divorce and remarriage of one or both spouses. Is it because I may be multi-cultural? Isn't an immigrant family multi-cultural, too?

Tell you what, find me a good, logical reason and I'll be glad to have you consider me special. Until then, I'm just one of the crowd like everyone else.

Thoughts, please. Are you special and if so, in what way?
