It isn’t every day that a child finds out their parents are not who they say they are, especially when they have lived with them for years.
Her Parents Have Been Hiding Something
Although her parents are still related to her, they have not been telling the truth about their relationship with her. That was until she discovered the truth.
Her Parents Are Related
She discovered that she was born “out of incest”. She already knew that not long after she was born, her grandmother begged her mother to give her up for adoption.
They Were Young When They Had Her
Both of her parents were 18 when they had her. They were still young and immature, so giving a child to a mature home seemed the best option. Yet, they decided against this and kept her.
They Are Brother and Sister
The parents were not only homeless and jobless but also half-brother and half-sister.
They Made It Work
Her parents decided to run away from home and live together in peace. The grandmother had already refused to help them financially.
Luckily, her parents started a successful business together, which is still going strong to this day.
She Finally Understood the Distant Family
For this girl, finding out her parents were related made her understand her family’s history. It makes sense why they were never close to the rest of the family.
Being related and having a child is frowned upon and not accepted by many people.
She Confronted Them
The girl decided to confront her parents when she found out about the news. But they denied everything.
She decided she would likely lie too if she were in the same position due to feeling ashamed.
They Denied Everything
After they denied the truth, the girl ran away for three nights and hid in her best friend’s basement. She was hiding from everyone and everything.
They Felt Guilty and Told Her the Truth
After she went missing, her parents felt guilty and decided to go out and find her. They knew where to look, and after finding her, they sat her down and told her everything.
They told her the truth about their relationship and made her aware of her upbringing.
They Still Keep Their Distance
They still keep her away from her family, even though they love her, which she finds difficult. It isn’t her fault she is a child from an incestual relationship.
Should She Forgive?
This video is a means to ask for help and understand whether she should forgive her parents.
What would you do in this situation?
Although it is frowned upon and challenges societal expectations, would you still wish to pursue a relationship with the lying and incestuous parents you have grown up with?
