I decided to come home for the weekend from school, so on Saturday my parents say they want to talk to me tomorrow (Sunday). I really don't think much ofit at the time. So Sunday comes around, and they spring this news of me being adopted on me. I was mad and sad at the same time. It really hard to explain.They told me that I was adopted in Italy while my dad was stationed there, and that my biological mother past away giving birth to me and that my biologicalfather could not take care of me on his own. I never really suspected anything because my mother is Italian herself, so as far as looks I never thoughtanything of it. What ticks me off the most is that my grandparents, aunts and uncles all knew about this and acted as if everything was normal. I can'tremember who, but one even told me I look like my dad (*$%!!!). I asked why they did not tell me earlier and my mom said that she was protecting me and feltthat I would not feel the same way about them. Man I am so pissed right now. I had a bunch of other questions and they told me that they can not talk to mewhen I am acting this way(upset). I am totally blown away, but I still love my parents the same. Without them I would not be in this great country or have theopportunities that I have now. Am I wrong to feel this way? My mind is going a million miles an hour and this is my last semester of school so I have mystudies to concentrate on and now this.
