American adopted woman, writing about herself: I was adopted on 25 March 1966 (ten weeks old). According to records, my biological mother, born 21 February 1945 in Burlington, MA was 19 when she gave birth to me. Records show she was in Boston when she got pregnant with me. She had dated my father (who was 29 and they met at work) for over a year, but he dumped her when she told him she was pregnant. She left Boston and came to California to hide her pregnancy from her family and to adopt me out.
I never felt truly loved by my adoptive parents. My adoptive father (born 30 September 1921 in San Francisco, CA at 22:30) came from an abusive home with alcoholic parents who would whip him, and his mother was killed when my dad was 9. So I don't think he knew how to have a functional relationship, but he loved me very much to the best of his abilities. My mother (born 1 October 1926 in Flint, MI at 01:30, data from her mother who was into astrology, home birth) came from a great home with loving parents. Unfortunately she was diagnosed as narcissistic. I always felt she never wanted children, and that it was my dad who wanted a child. I am the only child. I had a very lonely childhood such as not eating at a dinner table with my parents. My adoptive mother is still alive at 91, but I try to do the minimum possible as my goal for her is two-fold - 1) force her to do things for herself so she remains independent and 2) limit my contact to her negativity and drama.
I always felt rejected, both by my biological parents and adoptive parents. This resulted in me trying to seek out acceptance from my peers which was never easy, as I have been profoundly deaf all my life (possibly caused by quinine that my birth mother took in an attempt to abort me). I chased boys all the time as a teen and young adult, not realizing I just wanted to be loved and approved of. Thankfully I grew past that and became more aware. Now I just keep to myself and do my own thing.
