Where is my home?

Some people live in the same town, even the same house, their entire childhood. They know that's their home. But what about those who don't have a clear idea of where "home" actually is?


We want to hear from the third culture kids, the military brats, the adoptees — anybody who would have a hard time returning home because they're not quite sure where home is. When you don't have a clear hometown, how do you define home? Is it based on your birthplace? Nationality? Ethnicity? Culture? Where you spent the most time, or where your parents live?


Tell us: What feels like home to you, and why? Your response could be featured in CNN's "Going Home" series.
