My mom is my bmom, but the man I grew up knowing as my dad is not my bfather. I grew up with a mom&dad who loved me & I appreciate them so much. They did a great job raising me. Nothing will ever change the fact that they ARE my parents. My bfather and I have recently discovered ea other because my cousin-in-law's bro married my Bdad's daughter, my half sister. My mother had never told me my Bdad's name or anything about him. It was only last year that she told me he is half Japanese. It explains SO much about who I am. I thought I was some sort of genetic anomaly lol! My cousin came to me with the info & left it up to me if I wanted to know. My Bdad and I are getting to know each other and my parents are freaking out. I want to be respectful, but they are saying things like "Don't feel like you've gained a new parent." "I'll be hurt if you embrace them." How would you handle this situation? I'm stuck in the middle!
