we always hear the other side

While at a get-together with some friends, one of them asked if we would tell Payton that she’s adopted. I said yes, and that we have already told her. A couple of them shared stories of family members that had been adopted. The adoptees they were speaking of weren’t interested in finding their birth/biological parents.
It is interesting to me, as all we hear about is those adoptees who are searching for their birth family, those who feel like there is a missing piece in their lives. There are many new shows with a main focus of reuniting adoptees with their birth families.
I worry sometimes if our children will want to find their birth parents, and more importantly if they will hold any resentment towards us. I have to try and put those worries aside and do the best I can, and love them as much as I can.
