Coming Monday: Uncovering Medical History

Every time I go to the doctor’s office, the doctor asks me about my medical history. My answer is always the same: “I’m adopted. I don’t know anything about my medical history.”

This is a common frustration for adoptees.

Fortunately, I’m no longer completely in the dark about the medical problems that run in my family.

If I learn nothing more about my biological kin, I will be grateful for the information I have about my birth mother’s health. Stay tuned. I’ll have more to say about medical history on Monday.
