Picture of Nmom and I.
This is Sandy my nmom and I this summer at her visit. I have recently gained some weight and we look more like each other now. What do you think?
I have always been infatuated with families and how they look alike. Sandy was the first person that looked like me... or rather me like her.
this is a less than flattering photo but its all we took. I think next time we will need to do a photo shoot.
What are your feelings about families and their likeness if you are an adoptee?
Are you in reunion ? Do you resemble your natural family? How did you react to the resemblance?
If you are a adoptive mom are you comfortable with your children not looking like you and looking like their nfamilies? Was this a hard place to get to ?
My amom refuses to admit that Sandy and I have similarities. Tho with my ndad they could not get over it that we resembled each other.... I look like both of them. I wonder if their accepting my ndad has anything to do with his "doing ok in life" and sandy not doing as well.
I fit in with my family enough that it was not immediately apparent I am adopted... tho if you have a simple conversation with my mom and than myself you will know it lol. I am only kidding but we are very different people.
