Read an Excerpt
Village of Shorewood, Wisconsin
When I was seven years old, I was adopted by a gay couple. I really didn’t understand the concept, but a part of me was happy to be living in a home and not at an adoption agency. They were really nice to me and treated me very well. I never wanted for anything. I guess you can say I was spoiled. However, there was always a part of me that wondered where my real parents were. I would ask on occasions, but neither one of my dads would answer me. After being ignored I began to become that loud wheel. You know the one that gets the most attention. I would ask about my parents more frequently and would ask if we could go to the adoption agency and figure out where they are. Finally, after much reservation my dads finally caved in and took me to the agency. To my surprise my parents lived not so far from me, but signed papers stating they didn’t want to see me; that hurt. However, through much research I found both my grandparents and without my dads’ knowledge sought them out. Both sets of my grandparents were happy to meet me. It was by them that I found out the truth about my parents. It was truth that I did not want to know. Both my parents did not want a child at the time…the condom broke. I never in my life felt so unwanted and angry.
