I Found Out I Was Adopted And It Broke My Heart

Hello everyone, this is Andrew. Sometimes, a family is not what it seems to be. We all have our secrets, and when they're revealed, it can change us completely - and not necessarily in a bad way. But let’s start from the beginning:
Andrew's life was never anything special - his mom and dad were simple people with regular jobs. They never had any big fights, but it wouldn't be true to say that he was close to them either. They didn’t talk much except about ordinary stuff like school, grades and what was for dinner.
By the time Andrew's 15th birthday approached, his parents wanted to have a party with all their family friends and their children. Andrew was very annoyed, because he wanted to have fun with his friends. But his parents insisted, so he HAD to accept. During the party, one of the guests, who was a friend of his parents, said: “It’s amazing how much you look like your parents despite your situation.” Andrew was confused, and he immediately asked: “What situation?” “Oh…” the guest said, “...you don’t know…"
The rest of the party proceeded normally, but for days afterwards Andrew couldn’t stop thinking about what he had meant. One of the things that sprang into his mind was that maybe he had been adopted. It could have been true, because he’d always noticed small differences between his parents and himself. So one day at dinner, Andrew asked the question straight out. His parents just stared at him with a worried look on their faces, not saying anything. And at this moment he realized that he'd found out the truth. And it made him ANGRY. It turned out that EVERYONE knew except him. And it hurt, a lot. Andrew kept asking himself: "Who I am? What do I do now?" It was a very confusing and scary time for him.
He almost started a rebellion. He spent a lot of time outside late at night, and his grades at school went down.
The thing he just couldn’t understand was why they refused to talk to him about it. Why did they try to act as though everything was normal? And what was even worse was that they got angry at him when he stayed out for too long, and tried to control him. They weren’t even his real parents, so what right they had to do that?
One evening, when he got back late, his father started shouting at Andrew for being spoiled and ungrateful despite everything they did for him. So he turned straight around and left the house.
He didn’t know where to go, so he just walked through the dark streets. He doesn’t know how long he walked for, but it felt like hours. Andrew couldn't stop thinking about how nobody really cared about him. His real parents had probably left him, and it seemed that he was nothing more than a nuisance to his adopted ones.
He couldn’t go back home, so he went to his favorite childhood place - a pond where he had loved to look at the ducks when he was little. Andrew sat there, cold and sad, and cried. He was completely lost.
Suddenly, he saw his parents' car drive up next to the pond. His mother got out of the car. She looked scared and worried. She came up to Andrew and hugged him.
“We were so worried! We didn’t know how to find you, so your father said that we should try looking for you at the pond”.
Andrew still couldn't stop crying, and he started asking his mother questions - why did his real parents leave him? Why had they never told him?
His mother sighed, then finally started answering his questions: “To be honest, darling, your real parents just didn’t want you. But we do want you. And we love you. Both me and your father. We decided not to tell you, so you would have a normal childhood. But I guess we were wrong. I’m sorry. You are the best thing that ever happened to us.”
The only thing Andrew couldn’t understand was why his father was still just sitting in the car and hadn't even come out to talk to him. He looked through the window...and noticed that he was crying as well. Andrew had never seen his father cry. In fact, he rarely saw him showing any emotion. And his tears revealed more than his words could ever say.
“Let’s go home,” his mom said. And he did.
Andrew realized that his parents weren't perfect - they didn’t always know how to express their emotions or how to do the right thing. But they did love him. And it didn’t matter if he was adopted or not. They're still his parents, and he loves them despite all their peculiarities. Being loved is one of the best feelings in the world. And he was loved. And for that moment, that was enough for him to be happy again.

  • That’s just a bit ungrateful tbh, of course they care, they adopted you, at least you have people, some people don’t, always be grateful for what you have.

  • Congrats

  • Uhm but I don’t think these stories are real

  • :o I seen this on story booth’s channel, but the dad was talking and said a different story.

  • If I found out I was adopted I would be happy I was adopted in the first place

  • Small differences??? Bruh your a black dude and your parents are white... what the hell did you think you were biological dude why weren’t you like aware of your situation... oh wait

  • It wasn't his place to say "you don't know?" And say something like that. What are parents suppose to do? Tell you when your 5. Watch teen wolf when Jackson dad said "Jackson never said he loved us since he found our he was adopted"when stiles kidnapped Jackson.😭

  • That happened with me

  • I was adopted at 1 I know my parents love me

  • Ali a

  • Ungrateful I would not get mad at someone who wanted me and loved me.

  • Weird flex but okay.

  • 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭MY FRIEND IS ADOPTED 😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪🤫🤭

  • that was sad

  • I’m not crying, you’re crying!!!!!!

  • I swear some of you guys didn't watch the whole video. He's happy and grateful with his adopted family now why are you still complaining about his attitude? And it makes sense why he was mad too stop blaming him jeez.

  • My sisters are adopted from china :D

  • My parents told me when I was really young, and I had no idea what it meant for a long time since I was little

  • This made me cry

  • That’s sad ☹️

  • Best to be honest from the beginning. Some asshat always spills the beans.

  • I feel u... I found out I was aborted...

  • I wish I was adopted

  • Theres a reason they do it at fifteen or older...cuz they will under stand better.

  • I feel how angry you would be, but they loved you, and did everything for you

  • sis someone tell me why I cried

  • That story made me cry

  • This is lagging

  • This is fucking retarded

  • The way he said angry tho

  • the plus to being adopted is you accualy know you were waned

  • If i found out I was adopted I would have probably kill my self

  • Im a teenager and i cried😭😅

  • my dick is a massive 1 whole inch

  • I'm always lied to..HAHHAAHAHHAHAAH......HA.

  • My parents : Your Adopted Me: ok

  • I have a story... I have three brothers,they are from mom's brother. They share a mom ,and she is my grandmother... I love how we almost every weekend go see her. With my three brothers. Every Christmas and Easter and more we go celebrate at her house. And my uncle has a bit more money than usual pople... So somebody followed us...He couldn't find my and my uncle's family so...He brooke in my grandmother's house...He took everything:our photos,money,food...We wore scared...My grandmother and grandfather are now okay but we lost so much family stuff and money that we will hardly recover...

  • You don't need to be related to someone by blood to be considered family/kin. Parents are parents. Siblings are siblings. If they love you, take you in and raise you as their own, that's what matters.

  • same im adopted!

  • He said him and his parents aren’t close. Weird because why would u adopt a child then barely show affection

  • Is that a beanie? That you were wearing

  • Please don't read ? You are so close. Never mind not even close.

  • Even if I were adopted, I'd be okay with that. If my parents didn't want me,, screw em'. I got a second chance. I never got why people are so weirded out by adopted people.

  • Ouch... Man... Feels bad.

  • My names andrew to

  • I’m adopted! But I love life and I wasn’t sad because of my back story!

  • If I figured out I was adopted, I would be kind of happy, considering the fact that someone actually wanted to take me in, and wanted to love me

  • Wow. Adopted children should be great full that they are even living in a family. They should be great full that they have people who provide and care for them.

  • ... i DONT get it why ppl are sad they are adopted like YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE!!!😂

  • It’s weird because the only thing I could focus on in that whole entire thing, was how your parents told you how to spend YOUR b-day

  • He cheated for another girl and left when I was 2 or 3 year old

  • I got adopted because my mom died..So I had to stay with my dad that cheated on my mom..I have no love for him..

  • I got adopted

  • This kid is the type of asshole that watches the simpson edits with x musics playing in the back

  • My sis mom my uncles and I are all adopted too

  • 3:58 and they died in car accident (because father couldn't see anything while crying), the end.

  • Be happy what you have and who you are

  • Parents aren't parents without love

  • u are stupid u are lucky that they adopted u and u are 15 u don't think idiot I'm only 11 and I think life that

  • I was adopted in Russia!!!🇷🇺

  • Boii yall are saying no one loves u..if ur adopted parents didnt love u they would have left u at the adoption centre

  • This story is shocking. I am extremely glad I'm not adopted, I appreciate that I have parents whom love me

  • i wasn't adopted. i was abducted

  • I’m adopted sike

  • 1:57 Since when are there “F-“😂

  • My sister is adopted

  • I don't get why people get so upset about being adopted. I mean there biological parents couldn't take care of them or want them or there parents died. so someone else who loved them adopted them and at least they have a new loving family

  • Hold on This is on trending

  • Not all adoptions are positive. I speak from experience unfortunately. I'm happy that there are so many people who DO have a positive placement though!

  • 3:49 That's how my father is

  • You were chosen.... Wanted..... Unlike the majority of people.

  • I was adopted wen i was. 16 well not basically adopted my dad and mom dye in a car crash so my bffs mother took care of me and now i love her as if she was my mom the only bad part is that my bff is my crush sister so basically im my crush sistet 😒

  • I Want to adopt a baby girl when in in my twenties. I would bring her up and love her. But I would never keep that a secret from her. She would know, but I would treat her as my daughter

  • The first time I saw my dad cry was when he found out that my grandpa died. Ow. Actually, all three of us cried.

  • I will never adopt a kid because most of the time when they find out they are ungrateful and try to disrespect you just because "your not there real mom ore dad"

  • T was fosters in care but am adopt

  • Well I A M N O T A D O P T E D

  • awesome video

  • What’s so bad about being adopted

  • Your actual parents adopted you

  • Dude your parents is right even your not there real parents you still have there heart

  • Literally no one cares

  • It must be really hard for you :(


  • M a h d I

  • OMG i love this !! 💖

  • That is just sad when the mom said that his real parents doesent like him :(

  • Dumbass it’s clear eg Your mum white blond blue eyed Your dad is same as your mum You black brown hair black eyes It takes four brain cells to find who’s different

  • The dad looks like Hitler

  • Wow, he'd rather be a homeless orphan than kind adoptive parents. Just because they didn't tell him sooner

  • He should be happy that he has a home. He sounds very ungrateful. Even the whole party part.

  • His parents shouldn't have told everyone but him he's the one that needs to know.

  • I’m tearing up because I remember when my mom said a joke, “I picked you up from the trash can.” I knew it was a joke because I saw photos for proof. But now, remembering this breaks my heart since almost other kids were adopted and wished it was a joke. I do feel bad and lucky at the same time. :c Edit: When I said my mom said “I picked you up from the trash can” I forgot to make it specific but it’s kinda like adopting but you don’t have to pay...

  • They didn't tell him til he was 15 thats just horrible.

  • This is Hollyleaf from Warriors!

  • “His tears told me more than his words would ever say” A big mood for people with depression.

  • Oh boy!!!! HERE WE GO!!!!!

  • I was adopted and my mother told me she regretted adopting me and my sister and thqt it would have been better if i stayed in the orphanage. She ignored me for about 4years . She tells me i make sick. But she's fun sometimes. I prefer as buddy rather than as a mom.

  • Am I the only one extremely pissed at this boy? In my eyes, he was acting so immature for his age.
