Did I become a citizen because both of my parents were naturalized before I was 18? Posted on March 24, 2011

I came to the US in 1978 as a LPR. I was adopted in 1979 with a final adoption. My mother became a citizen in 1985 when I was 15 and my stepfather became a citizen in 1986 when I was 16. I was still living with them, and they are still together. Did I become a derivative citizen even though there was no paperwork done? I'm now 41 years old.
