Looking for biological parents is never an easy decision to make.  I think the first thing that you have to do is realize that looking for your biological parents in no way means that you find your parents lacking in anything.

I’ve always been worried that looking for my biological mother would hurt my own mother.  I decided that for me that was not something that I needed to do.  However, I know that there a lot of adoptees that want to find their biological parents.

If it something you really want to do I would talk to your mom and dad about it.  First though you might want to write out what you are going to say to them.  Have like practice conversations with them.  Maybe you can get one of your friends to pretend to be your parents so that you can practice talking to them about wanting to find out more information about your biological parents.  That way you will fill more comfortable talking with your parents.  Good luck, with whatever decision that you make.
