I have spoken with people about the possibility of finding my birth parents, and they mentioned how great it would be to at least have my “family” health history. I just laughed, I don’t think I want to know the health history. What if all the men in the “family” died early of some sort of heart disease? Do I really want to know that stuff? I don’t think I do. That has been one of the best parts of being adopted, is not know and not thinking about it. Not knowing has become a big part of me just living my life for today.
