"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. Forever.
