Dakota: "mom, papa jerry is your dad right?"
Me: "as far as I know."
Thomas: "what?! You have a dad too?!"
My son is special needs and I thought it was cute. My step mom messaged me and said my dad was hurt and offended by my status. She refused to answer as to why. I was talking with my mom trying to figure it all out when she dropped the bomb that made me understand but cut thru me like a knife and pissed me off at the same time. This weekend he told my sisters that for 29 years he questioned if my mom had an affair almost 30 years ago and told them he swore I wasn't his. How could he say that? I can't stop crying I'm so hurt. I never questioned if he was or not so why is he? Sorry, I don't know where to turn.
Update! Talked with my sisters to make sure I knew all the facts before calling my dad and saying things that I would regret had I acted differently. Turns out the conversation never happened. My mom had one of those vivid dreams that seemed real and continued to believe it was. Talked with my dad and cleared up the confusion of my status and explained my call almost ended up worse had I not thought all night and all day the best way around it. He laughed and said the same thing as my sisters, "your mother is crazy!"
