This story is dedicated to Troian Bellisario and to all of those who are adopted. Troian has been an inspiration to me for so many years and inspired me to write this semi autobiography. I strive to handle my struggles with the same grace and find ways to help those who are also struggling as she has. 

From the writer

This story is very near to my heart, as it is semi autobiographical. I share many similarities to the main character. Adoption is a big part of my identity and for a long time I felt like I couldn't talk about it. I hope this story starts a conversation and enlightens people of the struggles that can come along with adoption. While the situation the main characters are in is very unique, the feelings are widely felt among today's generation. I hope you like this new story, I am so excited to share it with you all. 

Thank you

Twins, Samara and Cameron learn, after eighteen years, that they were adopted. As the two struggle to navigate senior year, they find themselves grasping for the truth behind their origin. Samara wrestles with her identity while Cameron finally realizes why he's always felt like an outsider. Everything begins to come to light about the life they almost had with the parents who brought them into the world. They have two choices. They can either choose to accept it or let it take over their lives, let it bring them together, or tear them apart.
