On an adoption web site I recently saw a topic concerning a child who was being bullied by another boy. The discussion seemed to be more concerned with whether the bullying was racially motivated [the child is from Guatemala], or whether it was even bullying to begin with, and not just “normal” child’s play. I remember very clearly the bullying I went through, and then the adult formalized versions of this: Glass ceilings; calling into question of citizenship; etc. But I’d like to open this up first: Were you bullied? What were the motivating factors? What percentage of this were your adoptive parents aware of? How did they respond? Expand as you wish….
