You discover that your wonderful one-year-old child is, because of a mix-up at the hospital, not yours. Would you want to exchange the child to correct the mistake?

  • Nope....I would love to have an open relationship with everyone, but I know I would love this child as my own. I have two adopted is really the same bonding. I would watch out for my birth child, but trust another could parent my bio off spring fully~we are humans!

  • I would do 50/50 with both children
    and slowly detach myself from the other baby, and attach myself to the correct baby and slowly move to have my rightful baby 24/7

  • I would want to find a way to keep both kids in my life. There is no way I could give up a baby after having it and bonding with it for a year but I would also want my child in my life as well.

  • Eh that is hard, the kid would be 1 and i would have so much love for it, On the other hand he wouldent be mine, I would want to know my son.....Maybe i would go to court so we each could get visitation rights...

  • No but I would do what a PP said and maybe do 50/50 or have visitations with my biological child. I could never give up a child I raised for a year.

  • AWe it breaks my heart to even think of it my lil baby is 1 yr and 10 months and I couldn't love her any less if she wasn't mine I think in cases like this both parties would have to come to a mutual agreement on how things would be handled I mean the kids are bonded to our family as much as the family is bonded to them, my baby would not do well if she was taken from her big sister. She was totally distraught when my oldest spent the night away w/o her.
