My moms whole life she thought she was adopted and before she died we were able to do a DNA test.. well I want to tell them that I know. And its not like you couldn't tell. My grandparents are Dutch and Irish. Grandma has red hair green eyes. Grandpa blonde hair blue eyes. My aunt has blonde hair blue eyes. My mom had black hair and brown eyes. Anyways I feel that I have the right to know. I need a true family medical history and plus what if I have aunts uncles out there. God I don't know what to do. How would you approach this? Should I leave it? WWYD?

I would be honest and ask them. Tell them because you just want a true medical family history. That they will always be your grandparents and you love them and that will never change but that you are old enough now to know the truth. Thats how i would approach it.

They are your grandparents, no matter what.

Have they been good to you?

Eh, some what. Not really. On a scale one to ten I'd say a 2.5. They always treated my mom so different than they treated my aunt.

Address it if you feel like you need to.... be honest. Show them the results.

 So they never told your mom that she was adopted?  Is she older or younger than your aunt?
