#Adoptee Twitter has a verrrrry different take on this viral video than most of you I see sharing it in my feeds.

Not the best timing for me to bring on the dumpster fire I know this will light in my inbox again, but here we go...
When I was a young child, people commented constantly on how unusually bright and *articulate* I was for my age. I was also a really sweet little girl, always wanting to be a helper. People saw this all as proof I was well-adjusted & that I was loved well by my adoptive family.
The truth? ALL of that was fruits of my trauma. I learned to perform as a survival mechanism. I learned to earn affection. I learned to make myself as exceptional as possible, so maybe these parents wouldn’t discard me this time. I learned to prove how loveable I was.

Since I've been very vocal about being adopted, getting DNA tests & finding my birth family, I'm often asked how that all happened. So, I will try to explain my journey.
It started in 2017 when we buried my adopted mother, the last of my adopted family. It was about that time @Ancestry was having a Black Friday sale. The kit had dropped to $49 & I wanted to answer the question what ethnicity I was.
Within a month I had my results & they blew my mind! Most folks said I looked Italian & they were partially correct. To make a long story short, I'm good old American mongrel - I have an interesting mix of ethnic origins.

Gather around everyone...it’s time for some very TRUE short stories morphed into a unbelievably one in the end.
I’ve grown up in a very mixed family and being a proud biracial kid.
But, let’s rewind to a lifetime ago where I wasn’t comfortable or was constantly questioned about “what are you”...
Just like any character in their story. I’ve had my own twist and turns in my life.

However, my experiences that always stood out always seem to involve my family.
