Live Life and Just Be Happy

Being happy is the number one most important thing to me. It reflects who I am, a happy child. Whenever something is not going my way I just keep my chin up and think about the positive. I guess that I have always been that kind of person. Being happy and kind is sort of my thing ya know? When I was little and started learning about why I was adopted and who my parents were, even though they had their problems, I was happy. I knew that since I was adopted that I was special. That was the point in my life where everything started to get really positive for me. It just made me view life in a different perspective. Sometimes though, I think about how much more different my life would be if I was adopted into a different family or wasn't even adopted at all. Recently, over winter break, I met my birth father. Of course meeting him and seeing how great a person he was made me want to live with him. But I knew that I couldn't and I was just so thankful for the opportunity to meet him. Every day I listen to these children talk about how terrible their parents are and how they don't let them do anything. If only those children knew how hard it was for me to listen to them complain about their parents when I don't even have my birth parents. All through this though, I keep my head up and stay happy, because I know it is what my parents would want. They would want their child to be her happiest.
