Question. Belonging. Is it something you struggle with too?
I can't remember when I first noticed the idea of not fully belonging. Looking at my family, parents, cousins, siblings, I didn't look like them. Maybe that was it. But home felt like home. It was when,others looked in that the not belonging was magnified. When visiting other families. Families who looked like one another, sounded like one another. That is when I felt a sense of isolation. When I reunited with birth family members, suddenly I belonged to no one. Not my family (adopted) or this new birth family. I may have jeopardized it all.
