I Found Out I Was Adopted And It Broke My Heart

Hello everyone, this is Andrew. Sometimes, a family is not what it seems to be. We all have our secrets, and when they’re revealed, it can change us completely – and not necessarily in a bad way. But let’s start from the beginning:

Andrew’s life was never anything special – his mom and dad were simple people with regular jobs. They never had any big fights, but it wouldn’t be true to say that he was close to them either. They didn’t talk much except about ordinary stuff like school, grades and what was for dinner.

By the time Andrew’s 15th birthday approached, his parents wanted to have a party with all their family friends and their children. Andrew was very annoyed, because he wanted to have fun with his friends. But his parents insisted, so he HAD to accept. During the party, one of the guests, who was a friend of his parents, said: “It’s amazing how much you look like your parents despite your situation.” Andrew was confused, and he immediately asked: “What situation?” “Oh…” the guest said, “…you don’t know…”

The rest of the party proceeded normally, but for days afterwards Andrew couldn’t stop thinking about what he had meant. One of the things that sprang into his mind was that maybe he had been adopted. It could have been true, because he’d always noticed small differences between his parents and himself. So one day at dinner, Andrew asked the question straight out. His parents just stared at him with a worried look on their faces, not saying anything. And at this moment he realized that he’d found out the truth. And it made him ANGRY. It turned out that EVERYONE knew except him. And it hurt, a lot. Andrew kept asking himself: “Who I am? What do I do now?” It was a very confusing and scary time for him.

He almost started a rebellion. He spent a lot of time outside late at night, and his grades at school went down.

The thing he just couldn’t understand was why they refused to talk to him about it. Why did they try to act as though everything was normal? And what was even worse was that they got angry at him when he stayed out for too long, and tried to control him. They weren’t even his real parents, so what right they had to do that?

One evening, when he got back late, his father started shouting at Andrew for being spoiled and ungrateful despite everything they did for him. So he turned straight around and left the house.

He didn’t know where to go, so he just walked through the dark streets. He doesn’t know how long he walked for, but it felt like hours. Andrew couldn’t stop thinking about how nobody really cared about him. His real parents had probably left him, and it seemed that he was nothing more than a nuisance to his adopted ones.

He couldn’t go back home, so he went to his favorite childhood place – a pond where he had loved to look at the ducks when he was little. Andrew sat there, cold and sad, and cried. He was completely lost.

Suddenly, he saw his parents’ car drive up next to the pond. His mother got out of the car. She looked scared and worried. She came up to Andrew and hugged him.

“We were so worried! We didn’t know how to find you, so your father said that we should try looking for you at the pond”.

Andrew still couldn’t stop crying, and he started asking his mother questions – why did his real parents leave him? Why had they never told him?

His mother sighed, then finally started answering his questions: “To be honest, darling, your real parents just didn’t want you. But we do want you. And we love you. Both me and your father. We decided not to tell you, so you would have a normal childhood. But I guess we were wrong. I’m sorry. You are the best thing that ever happened to us.”

The only thing Andrew couldn’t understand was why his father was still just sitting in the car and hadn’t even come out to talk to him. He looked through the window…and noticed that he was crying as well. Andrew had never seen his father cry. In fact, he rarely saw him showing any emotion. And his tears revealed more than his words could ever say.

“Let’s go home,” his mom said. And he did.

Andrew realized that his parents weren’t perfect – they didn’t always know how to express their emotions or how to do the right thing. But they did love him. And it didn’t matter if he was adopted or not. They’re still his parents, and he loves them despite all their peculiarities. Being loved is one of the best feelings in the world. And he was loved. And for that moment, that was enough for him to be happy again.

    • TheDeadlyRune says:

      Lol, fucking loser.

    • T C says:

      90% of the video is basically you being a spoiled ungrateful little shit. Your adoptive parents deserve that you make a new video in which you spend 100% of the time being thankful, grateful and showing them love for the amazing thing they did for you.
      Im not knocking your story and what you went through, but any psychologist would suggest you still have issues with this. There’s a way to tell this story that doesn’t make the people who CHOOSE to love you not look as negative as you portrayed them out to be. To be even more clear, YOUR parents don’t deserve to be seemed as ANY type of negative people. They deserve better more so now that you “understand” what they did for you.

    • Bearded dragon 6 says:

      I am adopted. But I am still a normal kid either way.😊

    • Bearded dragon 6 says:

      @UC6H2ptXg1474rOBDADs3EAg yeah me to. They may be my birth parents but my adoptive ones watched me grow up sense birth. I never knew my birth parents but I know they loved me, because they gave me to someone they could trust. My mom and dad knew them. They would baby sit

  3. Bella and Amy says:

    Ok, i really love these and how they’re animated and how they’re based on true stories and I ALWAYS click that like button. I’m sorry if anyone has been through this but it can also be fine and it must be weird finding out who youve grown up with isnt your actuall parents💛💓

  4. R.I.P X says:

    My uncle found out that my grandfather wasn’t his real dad when he was around 12 or 14. He was furious. He grew an intense jealousy for my mom and other uncles because he was their father and not his. He grew angry at my grandmother for not telling him sooner. He only found out because my great uncle told him when he was drunk.

    PSA if you are adopted the people who raised you are your parents!!! Don’t be ungrateful for the life you have!!!!!!

    • Luna Eclipse says:

      Sid 27 PSA parents shouldn’t fucking lie to you your whole life!!!!!!!

    • Sid 27 says:

      Luna Eclipse i don’t agree with keeping that from your kids but everyone situation is different. I also understand that telling a young child that the person that gave birth to them didn’t want them is not exactly easy thing to do so it’s a bit of a paradox. But regardless the people who rays you or your parents they may not have given birth to you but it doesn’t matter

    • Rocket_ Mercury says:

      You don’t always have to love your parents… You don’t always have to love your family.
      Whether they raised you or not, if they treat you or make you feel like shit, a person has every right to say that they do not like them.

    • Miss Immaculate says:

      PSA, kids with parents that they are blood related to shouldn’t tell adopted kids how to feel!

      I don’t take my shit for granted, I’m extremely grateful that my adoptive parents decided to give me a chance.

      You don’t know what it’s like to wonder if your adoptive parents relationship with you would be different from a birth parent relationship.
      You don’t know what it feels like to never have met anyone related to yourself.
      If might feel inconvenient but it plays a much bigger part then you think.

      How about you try to see things from both perspectives.

    Hi my name is Mithali and I wanna share my story too..
    Well, it is about 2015 October. In my school there was a one night stay so I decided to go there. So after all the day activities we went to bed. Me and my Bestie slept together. We were not sleepy so we decided to meet my other friends who were on the other side of the hall. We were speaking and making joke while others were sleeping (it was around 12:30 am) . Suddenly I just turned to see the entrance of the hall and saw shadows of 3 people. I freaked out and told my Friends about it. Even they saw it. So two of us decided to go and see who was there. So me and my friend Palvi went crawling across the hall so that teachers don’t notice us. We then made it to the entrance. But guess what. We didn’t find anyone there. We returned back to our crew and told them what had happened. So we decided to take help of senior students. We told them what we saw and they helped us with it. We went out of the hall to find the shadows we divided ourselves into 2 groups. My group was searching out school building which has 5 floors and other group was searching at the ground. When my group was searching, we made sure to check every classes. We opened the door of one class and all of sudden all tables and chairs fell down. My partner started crying out loud. Then we were caught by our teachers and they told us that it must have been our imagination as we dont have good sleep and asked us to go to the hall. When we were at the hall we told what we observed to the 2nd group and they told us what they saw. They told they saw the same shadow inside the bus. We all freaked out. It was about 5:05 am and we were not able to sleep. I slept for about 10mins and then the teachers woke us up for breakfast. It was all very creepy. So this was my real life story.
    Hope u like it. But it’s really a true story which had happened to me 3 years ago when I was in 5th grade.
