For those of you who don't know, I'm adopted. Which for me means my life is completely normal...except everyone once in awhile I want to know more. I'm very comfortable with who I am, but sometimes I would like to know if I look like either of my birth parents, if we share the same quirks or even if our values are the same.
I have to admit it bothers me to know there are people out there who believe I have no right to know where I came from. To think that circumstances that occurred before I was ever born is the reason I deserve no answers, a sigh on the other line when I request non-identifying information, or my personal favorite "your lucky to be here" response. Its sad to think that a heritage is something people take for granted to the point they don't believe others are entitled to it.
