I was adopted as a baby in 1948 and loved my adopted family very much. They, in turn loved and cared for me so much. I was accepted by my parents' extended family as well. I knew I was adopted from early on and always considered my adopted family as my parents. Lucky for me, they had kept a copy of my original birth certificate and after all these years, I was able to locate a brother by way of! I still love my adopted family who are deceased and I am an only child. #1
