Today, my Dad sat me down and told me that I was adopted. I was unbelievably shocked by this revelation and asked him why he'd never told me this before. His response was, "I didn't know!" FML

yeahh I don't see how he wouldn't know! unless the wife split with him, adopted her then told the husband it was his kid

well if the wife cheated on him and another man impregnated her, that would obv mean that op wasn't her dad's real daughter, yet he still cared for her as if she were his real daughter, just the way adoption works. so in a sense it is like her dad adopted her without knowing, and maybe the reason he just told her was because he just found out himself.

well if the wife cheated on him, then she wouldn't be adopted, right?

"asked him why he'd never told me before" and he said "I don't know" he just doesn't know that why he didn't tell her/him

God you people are idiots! The Wife clearly had a child before she met OP's father. Ergo, OP's father not knowing that OP was adopted. Christ!

yeah, if this happened in America than she couldn't not let him know, because they would have her records and see that she was married(THEY would need HIS signature).

#59 it doesn't say that he said "I don't know" it says "I didn't know" as in he didn't know she was adopted.

Sorry but no matter what they are still your parents, biological or not.

He said "I DIDN'T know" not "I DON'T know", meaning he didn't know the OP was adopted, not that he didn't know why he didn't tell the OP.

#61 I was going to state the obvious too! u beat me too it. there are obviously people on this planet that don't have enough brain power to figure that fact out. pretty sad

You are the idiot. Adoption is a legal process. therefore the dad would be a stepdad. if the wife had the child, then at no point has OP been adopted. idiot.

#69 she wasn't being a grammar natzi she was correcting the word because it changed the meaning of what he was saying..

Is you father by chance Dale Gribble?

another possibility is that the mom was impregnated by the dad and the fetus/baby died in the 2nd term and so, already having a bigger " belly", she did not inform the husband and instead arranged for an adoption of which only she partook which was finalized around the date that the doctors were able to safely remove the dead child from her womb, and she just brought it home instead. depending on the dad's job, it is possible that he would have been unable to go to the dr appointments and the wife could have requested that the hospital tell the father nothing. she still had a "birth" even if the baby was deceased and the father may have been squeamish and not looked if he was there, or she could have asked him to leave. deception is easy. and the father could have adopted the child at the hospital unknowingly because there is paperwork to fill out and he may have just not thought to read them, because the wife already had filled it out or he trusted her, etc. some people just don't pay much attention and don't notice things. honestly it's not a fyl or a ydi, how could you deserve it? and if they love you and you love them, it shouldn't affect your relationship. sure it's an omg... really...? exasperation thing but just shake your head and live on.. nothings really changed

there is way more to the adoption process, like interviewing both parents. there's no way the wife could arrange an adoption without the husband knowing. unless, of course, we're talking about a black market baby.

a black market baby? and to OP, your mom has some explaining to do

was he always married to your mom? err foster mom

rawrmeansiloveu 7

she's not called a foster mom shes legally her child (if op is adopted) and is legally considered a parent not a guardian she is ops mother sorry I'm adopted so that kinda bothers me

de-nial isn't just a river in Egypt...

rawrmeansiloveu 7

90: you didn't know:) I'm adopted as well and I could care less about the technical terms. we know what you mean:)

150, that joke has been around before iCarly was on tv

ok maybe he just panicked... there was probly a reason why he had never told you

Father was away (work, military, etc) when (still)birth happened, mum adopted without saying anything to dad. Otherwise I am at a loss to see how this is possible.

Mom got pregnant by someone else so he considers adopted because he raised her as his own and never knew she wasnt?

gofferurself 10

fair enough, that works too

Mother was preagnant and lost it in the late stages. Never told him and then arranged a quick adoption. However it happened if noone knew or found out it must have been a decent childhood so who cares?

isn't that what happened in "the omen"? should we be frightened for the anti Christ?

WTF???? how dont you know if ur child is adopted???? I'm sorry but that's a failure

there can be certain situations in which the dad may not have military.and the mom just didnt want to tell him.its not impossible

calebobadiah - How about we make fun of you for something you have no control over? Do you have any control over being a complete asshole? Alex94xela - No, it is not a "win". It's an obnoxious comment meant to demean someone over his looks. You should be ashamed of yourself. If you'd like to tell this commenter just how you feel about him, do it to his face so he can punch you in yours.

Gonna take a shot in the dark here. OP's father is not her biological father, and he hooked up with the mom when OP was very very very young.

the mom isnt hers biologically either... so more like mom adopted her, met dad and never told dad op was adopted

that wont work cuz he would have known the whole time he wasn't the father.

TheDrifter 23

But he wouldn't have known op was adopted. Op could very well have known he wasn't her biological father without knowing she was adopted.
