10 Things Adoptees Want You to Know

We've now come to the last item on our list, number 10.

Don't tell us we look adopted.

Heck, what is an adoptee supposed to look like?

Did Michael Reagan look adopted? How about Babe Ruth? Or George Carver Washington? Charlie Chaplin? I could go on and on. The list is huge. Did all these as a group have a special look that called out "I'm adopted"? Don't think so.

So why do you think adoptees should look adopted, whatever that look might be? Until you  can answer these questions, think before you speak. Adoptees will see you in a different light.

Has anyone ever said this to you? What was your response? Leave a comment.
