A situation I've heard time and time again.
a kid was adopted, the man they think is their father really isn't and so on.
then once they get into drivers education and need their birth certificate, the mom tells the kid that it's impossible to get, or fights them on it some other way.
or once a parent dies the child (usually a adult) is given their adoption papers. Or a relative finally tells.
this is a secret that little to no one can keep. I understand that some may want to keep that secret, but we all see how unsuccessful the attempt is.
Then the person they were trying to protect is hurt the worst by the years of untruth or secrecy.
Since it's a secret that can't truly be kept, why try?
