My twin sister and I were adopted when were were almost a year old to New Hampshire, USA. We had eight other siblings, some put up for adoption and some kept by our birth mother. The only thing we really know is our birth mother had manic depression. In Russia my name was Anastasia and my sister’s name was Masha.
To me, adoption means love and loss. Having a new family, culture, and life but losing the old one. I am forever grateful for the life and family I have now. I hope one day to adopt children as well and find my birth mother & siblings. Thank you to this community at I’m Adopted – Amanda
