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.

I look enough like my adoptive mother that people would sometimes comment on our resemblance, and when I would tell friends I was adopted they often wouldn't believe me because I look like my mom. But I have cousins who resemble her much more closely than I do. And my resemblance to my first mother is much more striking. I have also gained some weight recently and in photos that were taken of the two of us at a wedding this summer you can see an even stronger resemblance because of it. Helps me feel a little better about the weight gain, LOL.

I agree on the weight gain lol ha ha. I felt the same way at least there is something good about it lol.

I am reading through your posts and commenting although you may never read them. :0 We are constantly told that our daughter looks like us. My husband is Latino and has dark skin and I have very curly hair. Our daughter is half Caucasian and half African American with beautiful mocha skin (though not as dark as my husband's) and very curly dark brown hair. I never expected her to look like us and I was fine with that. I have to admit I do get a thrill though when people say she looks like us. I didn't expect it.
