    Nicole, the longing never really goes away on either side mother or child. When I met my step dad and my sisters and brothers they showed me photo albums and my mom had a photo album that read, My Family. It had five oval pictures, mine and my two sisters and two brothers half-siblings. My step dad said she never ever forgot me. Sister told me she talked about me everyday. It was like I went on a sleepover and I was coming home later that evening. The timing is crucial better to know something you might not want to then have a regret of questions.

    Go online and find a Search Angel. They do the leg work, doesn't cost much. They should only charge you for copies and maybe a little bit of gas money but nothing more than about $30-$40. These are people who are part of the adoption Triad, either adopted, adoptive, or biological. As for the time element don't wait. If you want to know, do it now. I know as a busy mom, wife, personality, friend & everything you may have going on, don't wait. I tried for many many years and was coming up against a lot of brick walls. When I finally did find my family, my Mom had already passed away. And that's a Feeling that Never goes away. It can't be avoided. However, you have the time now do it and maybe being in a better position as you may be, as you may have more resources in the way of money and celebrity, you may be able to find even faster. I wish you much love and blessings in your search. It's wonderful that you had such a terrific adoption reality. Jacquie Capone

    I think you should find out about your biological parents and siblings. Why not? You may regret that later in life if you don’t. Your on your own so your parents should not be upset by that. You have every right. Very interesting. Your the best Snooki !!

    Nicole, this may be the wildest comment you will receive. But I was also born on Nov 2, 1987 in Santiago Chile and adopted at 2 months old and brought to America. I grew up in Maryland and I do know my birth parents and family from Chile. I too have the same story, I have one sister but grew up here in America as an only child and my birth parents were very young and could not afford to take care of us both. I do not know how to speak spanish as well but my husband and I want to travel to Chile to meet formally my family, I feel like we have such similar life stories, mine not as wild but I feel so blessed to know my family in Santiago and encourage you to try and find and reach out to your family! It was worth it to me! Crazy stuff! My mind is blown!

    I had pretty much the same situation as you growing up knowing I was adopted, being super content with it, and loving my family. The only difference is my parents know who my biological parents were, turns out they were only 16 when they had me. After growing more in more interested (especially about who I looked like!!!) when I turned 18 I flew to Texas (from NY) to meet them, and it was the greatest experience of my life. I had developed a newfound respect for them for loving me so much and giving me the life that they did with my amazing family. Definitely meet them if you get the chance! It filled a void in my life that I didn’t even know I had ❤️

    I am adopted I got adopted when I was 15 months old by my dad’s parents my birth mother was a drug attic alcoholic and did it the whole time she was pregnant with me and my dad just did not know how to take care of me so his parents adopted me.. I believe I am the miracle baby considering what my birth mother did while pregnant with me, I have two other siblings there are my half brothers we have the same mom but different dad’s she lost them too

    Hi nichole my name is kandis I have so many qs . Well too start me and my family adopted my little brother but he his technically my cousin we took him in after the fact that my uncle and his gf were hudge druggies and were living off the streets off and on so we were blessed to get him when he was just 3 months old and the judge granted us full custody when he turned 3 . Hes 7 now but I and my family dont know how to tell him about his story now that hes growing we tell him that he was a gift given to us and that as he gets older we will explain more and more what we mean. When did you find out? And how did you feel? Were just afraid that hes gonna tell my parents so ur my parents or that he might throw it in our face or get upset for us keeping such a secret .

    My husband and I want to adopt eventually since I cannot have biological children due to a chronic medical condition. We don’t even know where to start! We are so worried about the process possibly failing us and being heartbroken and of course, the financial aspect of the process (agency fees, etc). We would love to adopt a baby one day from anywhere on the globe! Any tips or insight from anyone would be so helpful :) PS we are from Jersey (woop woop!)

    I don't really associate you with being adopted although I know you were. Im just a curious person and always wanted to know how you felt about being adopted, if you met them or had the desire to meet them. I wondered if your birth family knows who you are, if they tried looking for you, and what their lifestyle is there. I always wonder what if you weren't adopted how your life would be. Thank you for being so personal with us. I hope one day you find your birth family just to know what your background is and to find your similarities.

    I was taken in by my grandparents on my dad's side. My biological mom, never told my dad she was pregnant, until I was a month old and in foster care. My dad was 18, and I had major health issues. My grandparents didn't want me not knowing my real family, so they raised me as their own. My dad and I, have had a rocky relationship. As he left me when I was 7 and moved to Clifton Park, NY with my step mom, brother and sister (I'm up by Dannemora, NY [Prison Break]).
    Even better, is the fact I have a sister by my biological mom that knows nothing about me because my grandmother on her side, told my (grand)mom who raised me that I was a mistake. And her life would be better if I was never born. Sweet of her huh?
    I do, however, have 3 little brothers and a little sister by my dad; Whom, none of us see each other as half siblings. We're just brothers and sisters. And I, being the oldest. Am looked up to a lot. They love their sissy. Plus. My little sister, has made me an auntie, twice and a Godmommy twice to my niece and nephew (at 27, i have no kids).
    Still. Everyone in my family, says I'm a blessing. All my friends love me. Anyone I meet, becomes a friend.
    You take the good, and you take the bad. Good luck in your journey sweetheart. I hope you find what you're looking for and that you find you find peace with it all ❤

      REAL TALK W. EMA STAR
      My sister was adopted and we were supposed to let her know from day 1. It wasn't to be a secret. My stepmom (sister's mom) passed away 8 years ago and my sister found out she was adopted due to an older child being mean. Finding out she was adopted after losing the only mother she knew has made her have trust and anger issues. So my advice from the perspective of having an adopted sibling ... let them know and explain how much you love them. Also if you have biological children don't treat your adopted children differently.

    Listening to your story felt like I was listening to my own. I was adopted from El Salvador at 5 months and grew up in Massachusetts. I just had a baby girl who is 6 months and she’s also my mini me! I’ve always wondered about my birth family and I know I have siblings as well. I hope one day I could find my family. Let me know what steps you will take to find yours. I’m not sure how to start the process. Love you 💕💕

    My mom just recently went and flew to ohio from alaska to meet her birth mom and family. She looks just like her mom and she feels so much more confident and whole because she knows where she came from and all of that. She knows my grandma is of course her mother and always will be but it was a cool experience and loved it! They still stay in touch. I think its definitely worth it, specially for health reasons. My mom found a lot about her health that all added up now. Love you!!

    Does anyone else think it is wrong for society to coerce poor people to give their children away to wealthier people? I also hate that society shame and blames poor people for giving their children away, instead of shaming and blaming wealthy (almost always white) adopters who drive the adoption market. I wonder how much her adoptive parents paid to adopt her and what would have happened they had sponsored her family instead of taking her from them? #AllFamiliesMatter. Even poor ones. Even ones with darker skin than ours. And does it ever bother anyone else that is costs far less to adopt a brown or black baby than it does a white one? (www.npr.org/2013/06/27/195967886/six-words-black-babies-cost-less-to-adopt)
    And girl, you need to read The Primal Wound. You might find out that you aren't as big of a hot mess as you think you are, but you are just having *very* normal reactions to the loss of your original identity, heritage, culture, language, name, and family. Stop and think about your experience in the context of the current situation with children at the borders.
    Scientists have been shouting at the top of their lungs how damaging it is for children to be separated from their mothers because of the mental health crisis it causes in families. For both parents and children. “Sudden and unexpected family separation...can add to that stress, leading to emotional trauma in children." Also, “Research also suggests that the longer that parents and children are separated, the greater the reported symptoms of anxiety and depression are for children.” The separation of children from families has been called “inhumane,” and warnings have been issued that it has “a dire impact on their health, both now and into the future.” fortune.com/2018/06/15/doctors-trump-border-separation-policy-causing-mental-health-crisis-families/
    Adoption isn't a magic eraser. It doesn't invalidate the trove of scientific findings that point to one unmistakable conclusion: Separating kids from their parents is detrimental to their physical and mental health.There's no adoption unicorn sprinkling rainbow confetti on your heart to help your pre-verbal infant mind deal with the sudden loss of your mother, which at six months was your entire world. You and your original family still bore the effects of sudden separation. Even if you are happy and love your adoptive parents (which is a wonderful and good thing!), it doesn't negate the fact that you - as an infant - experienced the trauma of being separated from your original family. Even if your adoptive parents had no idea the impact it would have on you, it is still there. Even if you are not yet able to wrap your head around it, it is still there.
    I think adoptees might have it even harder than the children at the border because we can all see how absolutely wrong it is in that situation.But with adoptees, we act as if decades of research about the neurological, physiological, and psychological impact of losing one's original parents doesn't apply. Adoptees rarely have that staggering loss acknowledged, much less are given the space and support they need to make sense of what happened to them. Now that I know you are an adoptee, so much of you makes sense. Behaviors I once rolled my eyes at are now met with the deepest of compassion and understanding. You aren't a hot mess. I promise.

    Wow I can really relate to your story. I was born in Chupaca, Peru 1990. I was the youngest of 7 or 9 older siblings I think. My birth parents were unable to afford me after I was born and gave me up for adoption after I was about 3 months I believe from what my adopted mother told me. My birth family was very poor and lived in the worst part of Peru at the time, luckily a Italian, Irish couple was looking to adopt a child from Peru and I was the one who was saved. Im entirely grateful that my birth parents wanted a better life for me and I feel the same way you do about everything you mention in this video, I applaud you for sharing and the crazier part is that I was raised in South jersey. And can barely speak a lick of Spanish but I've learned over the years from where I grew up in jersey. My birth siblings are probably also adopted with other families and it would be hard to find them but like you said, maybe one day you will look into if it crosses your mind again or whenever. If you ever go searching for your birth parents or siblings one day, film it, I may be inspired to do the same

    Amazing ! I had no clue! My mom gave my younger brother up for adoption bc she was already 18 yrs old with a 2 yr old (me), and my dad had left us and was in and out of jail so she could not support herself and 2 kids on her own. Since my family is extremely conservative, abortion was not an option for her, and my family did not offer my mom any support which is why she chose to adopt. It was an open adoption, and so my mom and I were fortunate enough to be able to see him and visit with him throughout his whole life :) to this day me and my brother text and hangout every now and then and I’m so thankful my mom made that hard, selfless choice to give him a better life. 💕

    i went to foster home at age of 3. with my two siblings. I got adopted at the age of 7. there is a sad story that happened. too long and personal. I know my family loved me. since we went thru alot. I was able to stay with my birth siblings. but growing up I never felt apart of family. just different from the world. and was eccentric and unique in my own way. know I am grown. I am 30. I been wanting for long time to find more about my relatives. my older sibling found some thru 23and me site. so reunion. I hope. I just they wanted to chat with me too. they just spending talking with my older sibling. :( so for my birthday on July 8 my adopted Dad(amazing dad I love very much)helped me get ancestry.com site. oh boy. well thank you Nicole. for sharing how you felt. I love to meet in person. but I am always been inspired and loved your personality from the beginning of the show. and getting a chance to see you grow on screen. well cheers! thanks for making laugh and smile. you and Jenni. thru your channel on USclip. keep on doing what you do. so proud for you .

    I had no idea, sounds similar to my life. I was born in El Salvador, and I was adopted at 5m and came to America (Ohio). I totally understand and get the not “needing” to know who your birth family is. Personally I want to know what my birth parents look like, but don’t need to know much more, I’ve come to firm long ago I’ll be okay if I don’t even get that. I know about the same amount of Spanish as you. Taco, Burrito, Gordita, lol my ass hole Spanish. In all seriousness one day I would like to see El Salvador. You have a beautiful family, and I always enjoy watching on here.

    I was adopted when a week old. My mom told me that I was adopted when I was 8 yrs old. I don't remember how she told me, but she thought it went well and I was okay with it. A week later I asked my mom "Mom, if you and dad didn't adopt me would I still be on a store shelf waiting to be adopted?" My mom's heart sank. I was pictures babies in carseat on a store's shelves with a price tag on our feet and couples walking thru picking out babies to adopt. So she had to tell me again what it was. I have always been okay with it. This is my family. They are my parents. I did look for my birth mother after having my own child just to find medical history. I found her and it's been 20 yr and we have a good relationship. I met my birth father once and he never talked to me again. His loss.

    Get your people to contact TLC for their Long Lost Family show. Have them do the work for you, make a vlog about the process behind the scenes for your channel to promote the show when it airs. There aren't many celebrities who are adopted that I know of, I don't see why they wouldn't go for it!

    Would you ever adopt from the same region you were born?

    I’m not adopted but everyone in my family is white and blonde hair and I’m tan with brown hair so I hate that no one looks like me. The only one that looks like me is my dad so I’ve always wanted to fit in more and have my family look like me. I’m glad to hear someone else felt like that too..
