Hi, guys —
I am a Protestant and in my church people are not baptized until the age of puberty. I was baptized at 13 years of age and from what I have learned, it was a valid baptism, however, I was adopted when I was a few months old and never found out who my birth parents were. (My adoptive parent wouldn't tell me.)
Certain facts make me think that before adoption I was baptized as a Catholic. I cannot check this out as I do not know any names or places.
After further study, it came to my attention that such a Baptism, if it took place, automatically made me a Catholic.
I say this with respect, but this has caused me deep distress for a long time and, if at all possible, I want to remove my membership from your Church.
I have no animosity toward your Church, on the contrary, I have had many good things come my way from Catholic people.
