Woman Won't Reveal Her Biological Child. Her Family Turned From Her And Her Kids!
As time has changed many people have moved away from what would be seen as “traditional” family dynamics and nowadays, a family can be whatever someone makes it. Be it your friends, your partner, whatever feels right for the given person. However, this at times can be a difficult topic for some, especially where children are concerned, as one woman who took to Reddit to get the internet users' opinion has revealed. Why have her children caused her problems with her family? What kind of verbal abuse did the woman’s mom throw at her? And was the mother of two at fault here? Read on to find out and decide for yourself.
Redditers To The Rescue
The forum-based website Reddit is a site where many people share their problems and where the community offers them their own thoughts on the situation. Of course, it is a vast platform, with all sorts of content but one of the most popular subreddits is AITA which stands for Am I The As****e. In it, people explain their situation and ask other users if they are at fault. And this one story from a mother of two had many of them outraged. What exactly happened? Read on to find out.
Family Situation That Caused Issues
Before explaining her situation the woman went on to say more about what her family life is like. She has two children, two sons who in the post she called Clark and Kent, noting that they were just aliases to protect their privacy. She went on to say that while both boys share the same father, only one of them is her biological son. The two 6-year-olds were born within 6 months of each other and for various reasons that were not disclosed, she has full custody over them both despite no longer being with their father. On top of this, for several years she had not been in touch with her own family and only started keeping in touch with them since 2019.
The Boy’s Could Be Twins
Despite not seeing her family for a long time, they know that she could not have given birth to them both herself unless, as she joked, she had the gestation period of a hamster. Once reconnecting with her close ones, the mother of two explained her situation to them, how it all happened, though she never told them, which of the two boys was her biological son. Though that did not seem to matter as given that her ex seemed to have a type, the other woman looked similar enough to her, that the two boys could pass for twins, having the same dark hair, blue eyes, pale skin, and cleft chins with dimples. Which made her brother joke that they looked like tiny Supermen.
The Beginning Of Trouble
Aside from a minor few differences, the boys are practically identical and so most people refer to them as twins. The woman added that had the boys been closer in age and she had full custody from the start, she herself would have mixed them up as babies. And while from her post it sounds like everything was fine with her family and her family situation, things had begun to change at the start of last year, just before the birthday of one of her sons.
Demanding To See The Birth Certificate
It was shortly before Clark’s birthday that the woman’s mother asked if she could see his birth certificate. That had struck her as odd so of course, she inquired what the need for it. The grandmother replied that she simply wanted to see the time of birth. After the mom of two revealed what it was, the older woman still asked to see it anyway because she just wanted to check. That’s when the mother-daughter duo got into an argument after the younger one said that she’s the mother and knows when he was born. When Kent’s birthday came around the situation repeated itself. But soon things were about to get worse. Read on to find out what happened next.
The Argument Blew Up
It was then that the grandmother had revealed that the real reason she wanted to see the birth certificates was so that she could see what the birth mother’s name was so that she knew which of the two boys was her biological grandson. The young mother had hoped that the argument would be dropped after explaining that to know which son is her biological is no one's business as she is their mother and that the whole biology aspect of it is irrelevant. She also felt deep down that if her own mom knew this, she would have treated the children differently, favoring her actual biological grandchild and that was something she wanted to avoid.
Grandmother’s Insults Come Out
The woman also went on to add that even her own children, while knowing that they are half-brothers, don’t know which of them is her biological son. Though that supposedly didn’t matter to the grandmother who, according to the post, would then go on to insult the boy's mother. She had called her own daughter incredibly selfish, narcissistic, and overall wrong. She went on to say that since biology is irrelevant and not important then she should have no issues with saying which of the boys was the biological child.
Family Sides With The Mother
While everything seemed to be fine in their family life to the woman, soon enough her entire family had sided with the grandmother, turning their back on her. They too had called the woman selfish and said that her actions now are more damaging than any potential future actions of the grandmother. The mom of two had stood her ground and not told anyway which one is the biological child. And unlike her family, her boyfriend has her back, agreeing that she does not need to tell anyone as it is not their business and that if anyone has the right to know it is the two boys but only when they are old enough.
Reddit Helps Out
The woman still felt guilty for treating her family and felt in a way that she was to blame, hence the reason for seeking out opinions on Reddit. Though the internet users agreed with her. They had all pointed out that she had every single to not disclose that information even to her own family, agreeing with the woman’s fears that she probably would have then begun treating one of the boys differently.
