should i tell my parents that i found out we are not related?
After taking a DNA heritage test, I found out that I was not only unrelated to my father, but my mother too. What’s worse, today I think I found my potential family and have already begun contacting them. Should I continue and find out who the real people are? Should I tell my parents I grew up with? Also, the parents I grew up not only do not look or think as I do, they gave me an abusive childhood due to alcoholism..
depends on how old you are.....and maybe your birth parents do not wish to be contacted....maybe you were not givin up by them...maybe the state took you away from them .....and maybe your not related parents saved your life when they adopted you.....and....you say they were abusive.....well untill i know what your defintion of abusive is i wont comnent on that...( lots of kids who feel their childhood was less than perfect often claim abuse.)..but i will say tread lightly....there are a lot of hearts involved here that can get broken beyond repair, your own included.
