My Adoption Story

I started my journey way back from when I was 6 years old. When Pete (my dad) came into my life. Back then I resented him for not being my 'real' dad. I felt like he was taking over the dad role. That wasn't what he was doing at all. He was there because my mum loves him and wants to be with him. He wasn't there to take anything away or change anything that wasn't for the better. It took me a while to realise this.
I had always dreamt of having the perfect dad from when I was a little girl but always feeling like that wasn't the case for me. I felt bad about myself. I made myself think that I must be such a horrible person not to have a perfect dad like I see everyone else has. When I stopped looking for that and started enjoying and being happy with what I've got in my life - I started to see something amazing.

Jumping 10 years I was 16 years old. At this point, I'm at the end of my GCSE's and I'm starting to come into young adulthood. This is when I decided that I wanted to get adopted by Pete. To me, he is my dad and always have been. He has taught me so much in life from rock climbing to right and wrong. He has been amazing. The older I seem to get the closer we get and the more we bond other and it's great!

I thought the adoption process would be quick and easy. Little did I know it took a year for it to happen. There was a long process. So it didn't happen until I was 17 nearly 18. At this point, I was nearly an adult and nearly out of the age bracket to get adopted. But this was something I really wanted to happen. I remember the day my mum called me after the court hearing, saying that it happened and I am now Pete's daughter. I cried with so much happiness. Ever since I have always looked back with a huge smile on my face of happiness. I feel like we are more of a family and now I can say he's my dad and it is true.
This is my adoption story. It is quite different to normal adoption stories. But it's mine and I am proud of it. I am not ashamed to say that I'm adopted. I am so proud to call Pete my dad!

See you next time for another.
