    Are you adopted?  If so, how old where you when you found out?

    I was four years old.  I asked my mother if I had come from her tummy because my best friend's Mom was pregnant.  Well, that is how I found out, because my parents felt I would need to know as soon as I was able to understand.

    Hi hurdlesgreetings, that's a good question!  I'm not exactly sure, but I think I was about three or four too.  My mum just started talking about the other kids I would be meeting at school, two of whom were adopted.  That's when I asked what adopted meant, and that is when she told me.  So I've sort of always known...I can't remember a time when I didn't know.  I am so grateful that they didn't leave it until I was too much older, I think that would be harder to handle.

      I agree Jil.  I wouldn't want it any other way.  I cannot even imagine what it is like for so many others that find out when they are older.  I think I would be very resentful.
