6 Ways To Know You’re Adopted

December 28, 2020

Have you ever wondered if you were adopted because of the way your parents treated you? Do you suspect that maybe your parents aren’t real parents after the flogged you? Worry no more. We bring you six ways to know that you’re not the biological child of your parents.

1. They don’t have your picture in the living room

You know Nigerian parents love hanging pictures everywhere. If your picture is missing, then you know something is amiss.

2. They sent you to UNIBEN

Any parent that chooses to send their child to the University of Benin clearly has no love for that child. Maybe they’re secretly hoping that either cultists or witches will take you off their hands.

3. They can go several days without calling you

You’re probably thinking “That’s normal now. I talk to my parents once a month.” Sorry to you o, but you’re adopted.

4. They’re generous to other people except you

Sorry, you’re adopted.

5. They don’t bother you about getting married or giving them grandchildren

Everyone knows Nigerian parents like asking you when you’re bringing your wife/husband home. If they don’t, you’re either too young (good luck to you when they start) or you’re most likely adopted.
