With about 7% of Americans being adopted, there is a lot of interesting study to be done. According to one adult adoptee perspective, as a rule, most adoptees struggle no more than others. As being a part of the human race, we all struggle and suffer from self-doubt.
When an adoptee begins school or becomes an adult, they may turn to try to understand their identities. Non-adoptees may have the same struggles, but at different times. They may also struggle in different ways.
How we search for our answers is unique to each of us, adopted or not. Many adoptees will begin to search for their birth parents as they solidify identity. And for many, it’s a very positive experience. But it is unique for all.
