How can you not have any feelings at all?

If you found out years after the fact that you had a kid, would you be totally emotionless toward him/her, or would you feel blessed and want to start a relationship with them? Obviously, you'd have to get to know them before developing a bond, but wouldn't you want to try? Especially if that child was your ONLY child? Now all this is under the assumption that DNA tests have proven it is your child.

Yes, I would certainly want to try and develop a relationship with that child, or adult as it might now be. I would want to make up for lost time, and get to know them better, and I would also want to explain why I had had to let them go. It's quite a barrier you would have to fight through I think, because the child/adult would by now have developed its own thoughts on how you might turn out to be. But in the end, you're tied by blood and that's a pretty strong bond, my friend. Brightest Blessings.

Yes, you would think so. I can say with much pain that the worst feeling in the world is to be rejected by your own flesh and blood.

I would agree, and fortunately for me, I've never had to bear the pain. I'm so sorry if that was the case for you. Huggggggs.

Hello dear leeesa. Such being the case, I think that I would try to get to know them and develop a bond without being emotionless because blood is thicker than water. I love my kid without any doubt.
