I was adopted but i struggle with how i can connect with my dad’s culture, even though he was adopted too.
My dad’s adoptive dad was Tongan.
My dad has practiced some traditions from the Tongan Culture. We still even carry our Tongan family name.
I am white, and i want to learn more and participate more in our culture, but i feel as if i am pushing some invisible boundary or trying to be a part of a culture i’m only slightly adopted into.
I was visiting my new primary care doctor earlier this week and she was asking about where my last name came from, as it was unusual, especially since i’m white lol. I told her a bit about our history and she was inquiring even more about how much i have immersed myself into the culture and i told her i didnt know as much as i wish i did.
she encouraged me to learn more and to practice the culture more..
i just dont want to step on anyone’s toes, seeing as i was only adopted into it by someone else who was adopted into it too. I have so much family over in Tonga and i want to be able to connect with them more.
i have seen a bunch on parents needing to adopt a child’s culture, but i have not seen anything about helping a kid adopt their parents.1 AnswerAdoption3 months ago

So my mom wants me to get my hair cut. And I asked if I could get the emo hairstyle because I liked the way it looked. But she said no just because it had the word emo. So I want to try asking her if I could get (how you would ask a hairdresser for emo/scene hair) and see if she says yes. I really like the hairstyle. And I have medium long hair it goes around half way down my back, or a little yes. And thanks!3 AnswersHair8 years ago

So my birthday is in 19 days and I don't know what to do! I'm a 13 turning 14 year old girl, I'm more of a tom-boy, I love to draw, write, read, and write lyrics, and sing, and hunt, ride four wheelers, go mudding, and all that awesome stuff!
