Man Discovers Shocking Secret
The Original Poster (OP) is a man who had a romantic relationship with his ex-girlfriend when they were both 19 years old. They broke up, and shortly afterward, his ex-girlfriend found out that she was pregnant.
A Lie Is Told

He Thought It Was Done
After their brief conversation, OP assumed that the abortion had taken place and did not have any further contact with his ex-girlfriend.
19 Years Later, He Discovers the Shocking Truth
Fast forward 19 years and OP found out that his ex-girlfriend had lied to him all those years ago.
She Had Passed Away
Sadly, she had passed away three years prior and OP was devastated to learn that he had a 19-year-old daughter, K, who had been living with her uncle.
The uncle contacted OP to let him know that K was interested in getting to know her father.
They Finally Meet
OP and Kara met twice, and they began to build a relationship. During their second meeting, K asked OP why he had not been involved in her life.
She Wants Him in Her Life
OP was honest with her and explained that he had been under the impression that the pregnancy had been terminated and that he had only recently discovered her existence.
Despite her emotional reaction to the news, K expressed that she still wanted OP to be a part of her life.
He Was Furious
However, when K’s family found out about OP’s disclosure, they were furious.
They accused him of being selfish and not considering how his actions would affect K’s image of her late mother.
They Called Him Selfish
The family was upset because they felt that OP had ruined the image that Kara had of her mother. The uncle called OP a selfish jerk for not taking into account how K would feel after finding out the truth.
Struggling With Guilt
OP is now struggling with guilt and wondering if he made the right decision by being honest with Kara.
Has He Done the Right Thing?
He is questioning whether he should have kept the truth hidden and protected Kara’s image of her mother.
