I couldn't find myself on the family treeBy anonymous on 28/07/2010
Heya my name's D and I'm fourteen. I'm writing this to all of those who have been adopted.
I never knew I was adopted. I've got blonde hair and blue eyes just like my Dad and my grandma always points out similarities between the two of us. Til one day me and my bestfriend were goffing around on the computer typing in our names into family tree thingys. And I couldn't find myself.
At first I thought it was a mistake and laughed it off with my mates. When, honestly, I was terrified that I really wasn't part of the family I loved so much.
Two weeks later I plucked up the courage to talk to my older brother, who admitted that it was possible. I was devastated. I was searching through all the family albums and cried my eyes out because there was no pregnancy pictures of my mom pregnant with me.
When I asked my grandma, my mom passed away two years ago, she cried buckets.
