I definitely need your opinion on this one!

Posted by   + Show Post

Okay, the second picture in the middle row is my dad...the second picture on top is my "uncle", the first picture is me, and all of the other pictures are of my siblings and my neices and nephews. Now, I don't know if you realize by looking at my dad and looking at my siblings and myself...I look pretty different. They all look like my dad, I don't. I look like my uncle, so I've been told my whole life. My mom denies there ever being anything between them (her and my dads brother...picture on the top right with my daughter)...My uncle just recently came to visit and it was the first time I have seen him in like 20 years (I'm 24 now). Everyone!!!!!....says he HAS to be my dad!! I don't think my mom nor my uncle would tell me if he was...what do you think of the comparisons??

My dad is Indian, Apache, and I am the only one without the dark skin, dark eyes, and dark hair.

I mean it is possible to look like your uncle and be your dad's kid. Just ask if it's a possibility

you're 24, at this point in your life, what difference does it make?

the guy who's been there most of your life, who's loved you and guided you through life is your father--blood or not

Quoting _OcToBeRbAbY_:

Yeah, but me being the only one which even favors him? I know family, genetics, all that can factor into this but I still have my doubts.

Just because you look like your uncle doesn't mean he is your real dad. He is related to you so the possibilty you look like him is there.

Your dad and your uncle have the same parents, right? So you are displaying genetic traits passed down from your grandparents. 

My youngest daughter looks more like my sister than me, but I gave birth to that baby ;)

My two year old looks like his dads brother. NOTHING has ever happened. We don't even live in the same town. It is all genetics.

That's just it, my dad just got back in my life a few years ago and was MIA for nearly 15 years and I've seen him only a handful of times since. And it honestly wouldn't bother me seeing as I don't really know either of them but I was bored and wanted to know outsiders opinions.

genetics can be strange that way. My sister has a different bio dad than my brother and i, but i look more like my sister than my brother. I look more like my aunt than my mom. 

Recently i my grandfather past away and i was going through old pictures of him and making a photo collage. It wasnt until i had all these pictures that i realized that my cousin (my AUNT'S son) looks EXACTLY like my uncle (my aunt's brother) and my other female cousin (from a different uncle) looks exactly like my aunt, not her dad! 

sometimes it is just the way genetics line up. they can be strange.
