Believe it or not, our parents aren’t perfect. They can do some pretty silly things from time to time, like forgetting you at the grocery store or accidentally putting you up for sale on Craigslist. However, our parents have secrets for a reason, and for the most part, we’d live happy lives without discovering the shocking truth about the people we trust with all our hearts. Scroll down to see 50+ people’s whose images of their parents were shattered after learning their deepest, darkest secrets.
We never really understood why some parents don’t feel like letting their children know that they’re adopted. If we were adopted, we would’ve loved to know from the very start, and we could hold it over the heads of our siblings that our mom and dad actually chose us, while they were stuck with them.
However, we’re not in that situation (we think), so we could never be able to tell for sure. This person learned the shocking truth about her adoption when a medical professional let it slip during an exam. How very, very unprofessional of them to whisper this fact while the OP was in the room with you.
