Our life may seem normal to us at first glance, but it’s usually the case. Almost all of us have done something dark in our past, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise if our parents have too. I get it that it’s hard accepting that you are adopted but some people have it way worse. Indeed, every family has secrets; they have been around longer than you have. Your parents have spent the crazy college phase too (or worse), you just might be unaware.
This is where fate comes in. These people didn’t have any say in choosing anything but still ended up questioning their whole reality when they witnessed these bombs being dropped. Ouch. Let’s pray our families don’t turn out to be like theirs and we continue to live inside our “normal” bubble happily ever after.
1. That is a lot of unexpected guests.
“So my grandfather is roughly 80 and has five kids (one of which is my father) all ranging from ages 40-50. Well about three years ago, he had a knock on the door, and it turns out that he had a family before he met my grandmother in Iowa and never told anyone.
He had married his first wife in California when he was sent out there in the Navy, and had two or three kids with her. He went and got himself deployed, and she apparently left with the kids while he was gone. Being the mid 1900s, he never found them, so he went on a cross country trip to New York for some reason. Luckily for me, he met my grandmother and had five kids, never telling anyone about his former life. From what we understood he graduated school, went into the Navy after working on some farm for a couple years, and tried to go to New York before getting snagged by my grandma in Iowa.
Well while he was doing this, apparently wife #1 was moving around the country as well, and every couple years, put those kids in adoption, busted them out of adoption, had three more kids from three different dads, but kept my grandpas same last name. So one of the original first kids went on a mission to find my grandpa, found him, and they all came to visit.”
