I have a friend who is also an adopted kid. Her bio mother hired a PI to find her. They've met and she went to a family reunion. C said it was odd seeing people who had some of the same features and mannerisms.
She also met her bio father who had no idea she even existed.
A lot to process indeed.

Susanna Musser holds Katie. When the Mussers of Lancaster  County adopted Katie, a child with Down syndrome, from an orphanage, she was  less than 11 pounds - and 9 years old.
 

Reduced to bare numbers, the story of Katie seems impossible.

Age: 9 1/2 years.

Height: 29 inches.

Weight: Less than 11 pounds.

Yet that is how she was, lying in a crib in a Bulgarian orphanage, when  Susanna Musser showed up to become her mom.

The little girl was alive, more or less. Her legs looked thin as broomsticks.  Her skin was colorless, her brown eyes empty. She looked as if she might  break.

I was adopted as a baby as well (13 days old). I think there's definitely something to be said for taking on characteristics and mannerisms of people you live with, which is probably what a lot of people who meet my mom and me in person pick up on.

Back when I was adopted, the agency did its best to match couples and children with similar traits and when my parents adopted my brother, they were asked if they would mind a child whose parents were red heads since there was a chance the baby could have red hair and look nothing like our parents. They didn't mind but he actually ended up being blond.
