Celia found out from her parents that she was adopted. At first she did not understand, but when her parents explain it Celia becomes very upset and mad. Celia begins wondering about her birth-parents and starts acting out at home. Celia feels that she had done something wrong and that is why she was put up for adoption. Celia stared to wonder if there was a way her birth-parents could get her back, but she found out that adoption is for always. As the days went by Celia had questions about her birth-parents and her adopted parents would answer. Celia then finds out that she was not given up for adoption because she did something wrong she learned it was because her birth mother took care of her the best that she could.
