    I did my ancestry DNA last year. Found my family through DNA matches 3 months later! I searched 20 years. Do ancestry and 23 and me. It works.

    Maybe in Chile you wouldn't be as successful as you are right now. (And obviously you haven't had the life that you have right now and your beautiful children). So as you said it was all meant to be. Happy for you (I'm from Chile btw.). Saludos! :)

    Girl if you are going to look for your parents you should definitely get mtv to do a tv special. I mean golden opportunity in the making there.

    now I can't stop seeing how chilean you look! i was blind before, haha. I'm Argentinian, we are different, but you should totally go to Chile, It's an amazingly beautiful country and a safe country, you'll be surprised, and you'll see that most of people look like you.

    Idk if you’re into history but have you ever thought about how Pinochet was still the dictator in Chile when you were born. At this time they would take the children from the people opposing him (or desaparecidos), and giving them to adoption agencies. Have you ever thought of finding the agency your parents used and figuring out if you were taken from your mom illegally? Maybe she’s been looking for you but has no where to start... idk just a thought.

    Wow this is like my life, except I was so fortunate to be adopted with my birth sister. And our birth parents passed away and were placed in the orphanage. So I've never asked any questions and my parents are my parents. Awesome the similarities!

    I was adopted at the age of a year and a half. Came from mexico to the united states. Just found out i was adopted about a month ago at the age of 25. My mother is encouraging me to meet my birth mother and biological sisters , ONLY problem is, i don't know spanish. I also always failed spanish class and now i wish i had payed attention lol. SO IS NICOLE YOUR BIRTH NAME OR WAS IT A NAME YOUR PARENTS GAVE YOU? My parents changed my name completely when they adopted me.

    Would love to see a video of you doing an ancestry DNA result, I'm almost positive it would come back that you are 65% or more Native American and the rest is a mixture of European countries (due to colonization etc.) If you made a vlog on you going down to chile and meeting your birth family I think I'd cry hysterically and rewatch it 1,000,000 times. Oh pleasee share with us if you ever do! 💛💛💛

    I am interested in adopting I never had kids of my own even though I would be an amazing mother and I love kids for some reason I just felt that there's already so many kids in need that need a parent why should I bring kids into this crazy world? maybe that's a really messed-up way of looking at things but I really am interested in adopting a child and giving him or her wonderful life where they feel loved and valued. I guess the fears that I have is Will they always just want their biological parents? Will they always feel like I'm just a substitute? Thank you so much for making this video and sharing your story! And why do you say you're a hot mess? You sound like a loving wife and mother and in my book that is all that matters and you are not a hot mess! Lots of love to you sweetheart

    Hey Snooks...I'm adopted as well 😊 I did get some information about my birth parents and actually talk to some of my birth family...I know what you mean with all the questions...who do I look like? Who has my laugh, eyes, etc. Sadly, my birth mother had passed away a couple years before I found where she was so I'll never get the chance to meet her. You should definitely consider at least meeting them...I would give anything if my birth mother was still alive and I could meet her. And know, we were chosen and our birth mother's did what they had to to give us a better life. I am so blessed and grateful and I know you are too ☺️

    I was adopted as well. Finding my birth parents turned out to be a very dark experience. However, I have a total of 11 siblings from my birth parents and I am absolute best friends with one of my sisters. So there's a lot of good and a lot of bad that can result from seeking out your birth family.
    Some end on a positive note just like in the sappy movies on TV. But a large portion do not. Tread lightly. Proceed with an open mind and an open heart but with zero expectations. I wish you the best🌹

    Nicole Polizzi this is an incredible story! I was adopted from Russia and into New Zealand when I was two years old. I found my birth parents in 2013. I traced them down using Social Media. Different for me is that my birth father didn't know I existed. Your video is inspiring not only for me but for others adoptees around the world. My channel is all about my meeting with my birth parents. My birth father I have a video about and also a video with me meeting my birth mother. Thanks Nicole for sharing this. I am now continuing to help others adopted around the world with my own Facebook Page 'I'm Adopted'. Thank you Nicole!

  • Lisa Martinez

    stop talking and being contradictive you're not content with your life you're not content with what God has given you your not content in who your adopted parents are and what they've done for you and how privileged you are because of them if you were content you would never want to open Pandora's Box to your past.

  • Lisa Martinez
    Lisa Martinez 19 days ago

    What questions do you have that you want to go to a country that you were removed from for greater reason and a greater purpose. what insecurities do you have about yourself and what do you say to your adopted parents who raised you and gave you all of themselves. there are many reasons why you would given up for adoption but you have to remember the god permitted you to come out of a really ugly circumstance do not Place yourself back there.

  • Lisa Martinez
    Lisa Martinez 19 days ago +3

    Snooki some things and people should just be left in your past there is a reason why God permitted you to not know who your birth family is. You really don't want to open a can of worms you may not know what's hidden in that past and how negative it can impact your life now you don't know what demons and that Pandora's Box your opening some doors are just meant to keep closed do not let your curiosity get the best of you and steal the gift that God has given you. if you go back to that passed and you connect to people that you were never meant to be connected to in the first place then you're going to have a world of problems in your life just leave it alone and leave them alone.

      I think this is a HORRIBLE way to look at being adopted. It's a blessing, before i knew i was adopted. My birth mother couldn't afford to raise me and my sister since she was a single mother, but that doesn't mean she didn't love me. Giving up a child is one of the hardest things a mother can do. My birth mother gave me up and i now have such loving parents, and now knowing that i'm not their biological daughter but seeing how all years that they have treated me as their own has really opened my eyes. Now that i know i'm adopted, my mother tells me how my biological mother and sisters always ask how i'm doing, and well next year i will be making a trip to mexico to go meet them. No demons, no doors that were meant to be shut. Nothing but positivity and curiosity and a blessing to be able to meet the birth mother that wanted a better life for ME, and for her to see how much i've grown and blossomed.

      Lisa Martinez if Nicole wants to ever meet her birth parents she can it’s her life and her choice . She can do what she likes . I was Adopted myself as 6 weeks old . As my parents couldn’t cope with looking after me so my auntie and uncle took me in . And that’s where I stayed . They are both now in their 70s . I’m grateful to have them as my parents . I just wish they was my real parents . They treated me better than my real parents .

    Snooki being adopted makes you special and unique...in the end when you do research and find out your blood genes you come to the conclusion of you're actual genetic history which is kinda fun just like those projects we work on in elementary school about our family history... we find out interesting things that could have remain mysteries and helps you too find out who you are now...Always be proud of who you are and where you came from never be ashamed it's always better to know than to not know or never find out....stay strong💖

    Not sure if youre going to read this or not but I was adopted too, In the Bronx and than we moved upstate N.Y.. I met my birth mother when I was 14. I don't really remember my birth father. He passed when I was 5.. I would deffinetly consider meeting your birth parents.. I soo wish I could meet my father.. I literly think about him everyday. If I didn't meet my biological mother I would have never met my 10 year old half baby brother.. Goodluck.. I hope one day you do decide to meet your blood parents. It's never too late.. But don't wait too long, life is too short.

    Hi Nicole. Thank u for sharing ur story. Noting something that u said about u not speaking Spanish tho u r from Chile...a child does not have a natural ability to speak the language from their birth country, we pick up our language(s) from the environment in which we grow up. Just because a baby is born in, say, Japan, doesn't mean that he/she will have a natural ability to speak Japanese, unless he/she grows up learning that language. It was very brave and very loving for ur parents to give u up so u could have a better life. I think it would be awesome for u to meet them one day, if u could. Smiles from Canada!

    as an adoptee, i love your story. you embrace it as a gift, which as a mom you understand it was the hardest thing to do, give up your child. My curiosity led me to do the ancestry and found my biofamily(after 4 years.) Growing up I looked completely different and was always asked "what are you?" did you receive the same or did you blend in with your family?

    I was adopted at age 5 months. I am 35. Just met my birth family recently. I started wondering when I had my own family...around 30. Its called adoption "FOG". I love my adopted family dearly but I wanted to know what traits etc my birth family shared with my kids. I didnt want them to grow up not knowing dna family just repeating the cycle. I say GO FOR IT. Your mom is STILL your mOm. U need to do this for Yourself AND ur kids!!

The reason why I say this is because in June when you were at Drai’a night club I watched a fan bend her entire over the couch and hug you and instead of responding to her “I love you Snooki” your the best you just pull your body away and kept smoking you cigarette. The girl was so embarrassed and ashamed and I was surprised because I use to love your personality but it’s all fake just so your broke ass can collect coins. Stealing money from strippers and shit!

    If you decide to search for your birth parents, be extra careful by not hurting the parents who raised you. Also take into consideration that they might not want to meet you & if they happen to know who you grew up to be, hopefully they don't use your career to try to get money from you. Over all if you decide to meet them, then please talk about on a future story time.

    Maybe your adoption was illegal...try to do an investigation, Chile its not a country that you can adopt so easy, many chilean families are waiting for an adoption now and in the past too, in your time perhaps was because the dictatorship, everything was illegal and many babies were stolen✌✌

    Many newborn babies were stolen and sold in false adoptions by the corrupt Chilean government under the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet from the years 1973 to 1990. I highly encourage you to look into finding your birth parents if you are an adopted Chilean born during that time, as there is actually a very real chance that your birth parents NEVER placed you for adoption. Since the end of the dictatorship, many Chilean parents have come forward and said that the hospitals took their babies from them against their will and the babies were never seen again. Watch "Children of Chile" a documentary about Chile's broken adoption system and all of the children stolen from loving families during this era.
