My husband thought he was the father of a child when he was only 18. (named on birth certificate) found out afterwards that “girlfriend” was sleeping with other boys but back then DNA testing was expensive and not readily available so he doesn’t know for sure if the child was his or not. child was legally adopted by grandmother and moved overseas. Child is now an adult and has changed his name back to my husbands surname but has had no contact with us for over a decade.
Should we tell our kids about this? would love to hear others experiences as either the child or adult in this scenario as the world is only getting smaller i would hate for them to find out from somewhere else, but also we have no contact and i dont really want contact with them.
