Adoption

Being adopted myself I get the inside scoop on personal feelings of adoption. Everyone feels differently about it of course.

I often wonder what it would be like (and you will all have to tell me) to live with people who looked like you, who act like you. Would they understand the way I feel more than the people I'm living with now? Would they communicate the same way I communicate.

I know life would be very different but how different would it be? Would it be better? Would it be worse? I think that some things would be better and others worse.

Do my legal parents understand me as much as my biological parents would?
I sometimes think that my parents are to strict and think what it would be like if I were living with my biological family. Would the rules be the same? Would there be other even more strict rules?

I look around me and see that yes there are other families with parents that aren't as strict with their kids as much as I think my parents are with me, but I also see many families that I think are just way too strict. Does that mean I'm the happy medium?

I don't know. I wish I could figure out something of interest to post on my blog sometime. Why would you all want to read about how an adopted kid feels? If you read this far than you are either bored or a great friend. Either way thank you if you are reading these last sentences.

Very interesting! My parents and sister are a lot like me i guess, but we are still different in many ways, and think differently. :)
Btw, I'm not sure if you want to sleep in our schoolroom Friday night because we'll get home at about 10 ... and you might have to stay that night too unless your Dad wants to pick you up that late :) Tianna told me to tell you to bring a sack lunch and supper... you might be able to buy a meal there if they have extra but i couldn't say...
well this is way too long! lol luv ya :)

Well we are all different no matter what.

I think I'm getting a ride from the McMurrys. Ok thanks I didn't think about food lol. :D

Love you too!

I have to disagree with you. I am not adopted nor is anyone else, but we don't look alike, we don't act the same, we don't even understand each other at times. And the strict part is how your parents were brought up.

Well Olivia, I agree with the anonymous person. Yet, I can also see where you're coming from... sometimes we don't understand all the "why's" behind what happens in our lives. We ask the questions "why is our life like this, and not another way"... but throughout the bible we see how God works all things according the counsel of His will (even if we don't understand (the story of Joseph, etc)). God placed you in the family you are with for a reason. You may find there ways strict, and you might think it's un-necessary, but God knows where you're at, and He has a plan. I hope that made sense :-) Love you! :)

Well, families always have their rivalries. But in my home I feel like the outcast. I'm the only one that has come from another family. You may not realize it but there are similarities in looks in most families (especially yours Des). I have recent pictures of my family and we all look so much alike. It's hard to explain what I'm going through, but what you see on the outside is not what's going on on the inside. How people act in public could be the opposite of how that act at home. What drives me insane is that fact that I was the only one in my family adopted and they didn't even want to give me up.

May I ask who anonymous is?

Jopics said...

To make things more clear about the ending in the above post. I am the only one adopted in my BIOLOGICAL family.

There are some similarities, but all in all they don't look alike. Like Devin, if I didn't know he was Des's bother I would not have guessed they were from the same family.

Jopics said...

Really? I can so tell that they are brother and sister. So you gonna tell me who you are?

Anonymous said...

I bet the reason why you can tell that they are related is that you are a girl and I am not.

Jopics said...

Hahahahaha but you aren't telling me your name. Hmmmmmm......What do I have to do to get it from you?

Anonymous said...

You know, it is not a crime if I don't tell you my name.

Jopics said...

No it's not a crime, I'm not saying it is and I don't think it is. My curiosity is just getting the better of me. ;)

Anonymous said...

Just don't let curiosity get the better of you, ok this is very good advice.

Anonymous said...

anyway why are you sooo curiosity of who I am? I am only a anonymous person.

Jopics said...

There is a saying I always love to quote, curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought it back!

No don't tell me who you are because that would take all the fun out of this :D

(but I do think I know who you are if you are someone I know because only one person I know talks the way you do)

Jopics said...
