finding out you're adopted
Being told that you're adopted could leave you with a lot of different feelings. It's natural to feel lots of emotions at once, as this is your body's way of processing and understanding what's going on.
You might feel angry, sad, lonely or confused. You might wish you'd found out earlier.
Finding out you're adopted can be a very difficult thing to accept. But there could be lots of reasons why you weren't told sooner.
Your adoptive parents might have been waiting until they felt you were old enough to process it. Or they might have wanted you to feel fully part of the family.
