Ever sense I got adopted from Russia at the age of seven , I had to adapt to a new culture. Had to obviously learn English. Thinking as a seven year old as I was, decided to give up my first language. The reason is, I was traumatized, had a rational fear of getting sent back to the Russian orphanage again. Reflecting back 12 years ago, I sincerely regret giving up my first language, thus, it's giving me a guilt trip . Not to mention, I didn't have anybody to keep up with my Russian language. Will this look negatively towards the medical schools that I apply too in the future? I'd appreciate the suggestions.
