i hate when i have to explain to people i just met why my parents are so old. (literally 68 [mom] and 70[dad]. theyre actually very active and healthy. my mom cooks, does laundry and cleans 24/7 and my dad drives everyone where they need to go and hes so active its hard to believe hes 70).why do people even ask. i always have to explain otherwise people are weirded out. its a long story anyways. basically, my older brother (who is now dead) wasnt supposed to be my brother. he wanted to adopt me and my siblings and take us out of foster care (he had a relationship with my mom and they were engaged but my mom had an affair.) he couldnt adopt us bc he was single and so his parents did, and he became my adoptive brother and his parents became my parents. why do people think that is weird? without them i wouldnt have a family. or dance. or piano. or a nice house . they've given me everything ive ever wanted and i love them. why do people need an explanation.
