"Rose, you're adopted."
Those three words stung like a b*tch. I was told I was adopted, and that I was going to be staying with my brother from then on. No questions asked.
My adoptive parents put me on a plane headed for California, since that was where my brother lived.
I didn't even know his name, much less what he LOOKED like.
H*ll, I didn't even know if he knew I was coming.
But when I stepped off that plane, I knew my life was changed.
