I'm and adoptee, 36 years old and have been going round in circles trying to trace my identity and heritage since I was 18.

Born in Syracuse, New York I was shipped off to England when I was 2

Keep on being amazed at the attitudes of adopters and governments and very very confused as to why I am not allowed to have my own birth certificate.  I have written loads of letters to NY supporting the current Bill but I don't know if they'll take much notice of a 'foreigner'  even though I was born there and they are holding my records hostage

I have kept my right to my US passport and use this to my advantage quite alot.  I've been back and forth between the US and the UK quite often but now I have kiddies, I've stayed put here in the UK (but I'll be in NY again in July this year)

Still searching, still frustrated, still kinda scared to say how I feel for fear of the responses (you know the kind I mean)  But it feels safe here.

I've been in a fog most of my life, letting others define who I am and what I should think and feel and then, I discovered there were others who felt just like me! yay! I'm not alone, or crazy or maladjusted - just adopted! what a revelation.

Lovely to meet such a great bunch of people.  You guys help validate my feelings and I am able to define who I am and my experiences all by myself

Hi Heather - nice to have you here!!!! I was also 36 when I discovered I wasn't mal-adjusted and angry - just adopted - bwahahaha. That was a little over three years ago.

Hello buddy - welcome to the group. I've been in reunion with my father for 2.5 years. It's nice to have some dads on the board.
