I know quite a few people who were adopted. Have you ever thought of looking into who your "natural" parents were?
A friend of mine did it a few years ago. We all thought it was hilarious because he's a real city boy and they turned out to be an elderly country couple.
They got married after he's been given away for adoption and went on to have more kids. They'd lived in a very rural location all their lives.
He went to public school and had absolutely nothing in common with them. He could barely understand their accent.
