Who Am I?

I am Will. I like being adopted. If I weren't adopted, I wouldn't know where I would be right now. I'm not treated any different. Even though I'm adopted, I'm still just like any other regular kid. This is my life and it's the only one I know.

My name is Casey and I am a good soccer player. I love music and dancing in my room and I am interested in a lot of things. When I think about my adoption I wish I could know my birthmom so I could ask her some questions. I know my mom and dad talk to me about how hard it is for me because I want to meet my birthmom. I am happy most of the time.

I am Paul, and I am 12 years old. I like soccer. I'm just a regular kid like everyone else. I'm not better or worse than anyone else. I am special like everyone else. My mom says I am a blessing.
