Glee actress Jenna Ushkowitz has spoken up about her experience as an adoptee for a children’s book called “The Adventures Of Squirky The Alien #5: How Do You Get To The Garden Galaxy?” by Singapore author Melanie Lee.
The book is about an alien named Squirky who is adopted by a Chinese family and faces some tough choices regarding his birth parents.
Within the section of “real-life experiences,” Ushkowitz talked freely about her childhood.
"I decided to share my story because it is so positive and I feel that a lot of adoption stories can be negative, with the adoptees feeling that something was missing,” said Ushkowitz.
Having been adopted into a family in New York at 3 months, Ushkowitz told Straits Times that she hasn’t “had questions” about her biological parents.
She also added that it may be some time before she begins her search to meet them. "It's not something that I'm ready to do just yet."
