David Jordan was 7 or maybe 8 years old when his parents told him he was adopted.
He remembers going to the attic to be alone with his thoughts.
“I stayed in that attic for about two or three hours crying,” he said. “Most adoptees have this hurt and feeling of abandonment when they find out that they were adopted, and I would say that happened to me, too.”
Following that delicate moment came years of wondering. What is his birth family like? How might his life be different if he had not been given up for adoption?
