GUEST,LilyFestre BS: Not their Father's Children (35) RE: BS: Not their Father's Children 29 Jan 07

I think the question becomes more of why shouldn't they know? As a child of a man who was adopted, I can tell you that not knowing your history, your medical make-up, etc. is disconcerting. It also leaves a curious gap about who do I look like? Who do I take after? Did anyone else in my family have the same interests or quirks as I do? Are any of them alive? Is some woman missing my Dad and wondering about his life on March 1st of every year?

It's not that life doesn't go on but it sure does leave many unanswered questions.

If I were her child, I would want to know and I think they have a right to know. I also think that it is up to the mother to disclose this information. Think of the damage and hurt that could be created if they learned this from someone else.
