Adopted. Raised as white. No identity.

Being Latina, with a white name, but in knowledge of my Latino surname. I try to be supportive of my friends with their biracial and transracial adoptions, but it is so hard. I have suffered and struggled so much with my identity. People have such good intentions, but the children suffer. Then, “Be glad you were adopted”, attempting to make me feel guilty. YOU ALL HAVE NO IDEA what it is like .
