Dear Robyn and Skippy;
My mother and I have reached an impasse and I don’t know what to do about it. I found out when I was 15 that the man I thought is my father isn’t my biological father. I’m 24 now and she still will not tell me who my biological father is.
I think it’s important to know but for reasons she will not tell me she thinks I don’t need to know. She refuses to even discuss this with me.
My mother and the man I thought was my father are now divorced. The broke up about 2 years after he found out he wasn’t really my father. He and I have a casual relationship now. We see each other but are not really close.
Do you think I’m being unreasonable in my desire to know who my biological father is? Or should I get over it and move on? How can I convince her that it’s important to know who my real father is?
