Yes, so I’m using this MTV video for my own purposes. Replace the subject of black people with adopted people and you will get a glimpse of what it’s like to live as an uncloseted adoptee. “My neighbor’s cousin is adopted, so I know exactly how you feel.”
Cribmates, feel free to give examples of the non-adopted explaining the adopted experience to you. I’ll start:
“I saw Philomena. Did you know some adoptions were forced?”
Elle Cuardaigh is still experiencing a turkey hangover and is going back to bed now.

“I have a friend that adopted and it’s been nothing but joy for them…” (Of course, the adopted child is two years old.)
“Ross is adopted too, and he’s fine with. He doesn’t want to find his birth mother, because he’s satisfied with his lot in life!”
Ross actively hated his birthmother, referring to her as “that bitch who gave me away” until he found out about the forced adoption era.
