Why do some people search out their birth parents and others do not?
Nearly 1 in 4 adopted children make contact with their birth family before they turn 18 years old, according to charity, Adoption UK.
It is interesting to me why some people look for birth families and others do not. I have one girlfriend who has no interest. She says she grew up with no real desire. She had a very happy childhood and loved her parents. That doesn’t mean all happy adopted kids like that friend don’t search for families.
I have learnt that there can be an event that sparks a search, like a health issue, or simply just the need to understand where they have come from.
