Are you adopted or were you ever in foster care?
Yes, adopted. Closed adoption as they all were until recently. My brother was also adopted and we are 5 months apart. When people learned that fact many asked if we had the same birth mother! Umm, how would that work? My mom would explain that we were adopted and we're 5 months apart We were like twins. When I was around 3 I told her, "Just tell them we're twins" she did after that. Also found my birthparents after a long search. This was in the early 80s way before home DNA tests.
My older brother tried to convince me I was adopted once. Mom was furious!
