I thought about this and yes I would. I would also give the hospital a price of my mind for loosing my real child and giving my child to someone else. Their might even be a law suite for time lost. I would still love the child I raised as my own. The reason being I am the all that the child has ever known. I would contact the people that have my real child and explain what happened. It would be heart breaking for my family and theirs but at least everyone would know the truth and see the child they once lost. I would hope we all would become great friends after the mishap. I would get to know my real child and their family if they were ok with that and they would get to know me and their child. Their would be some much catching up and so many questions. It would be like starting over but backwards. I would be sad I missed out on my childs life but glad because I gave child I did have the best I could. The hospital would definetly have alot of explaining to do.

Yes. I would search for my real child until the end. I do not know if I could raise someone elses child either. I would be wanting my own child and missing them too much to give my attention to another child.

yes, i will really look for my real child. if it is possible to get him back, i will do that so that he meets the child given to me in error by hospital. i am sure of the legal battle that comes with this erroneous act of hospital.

Of course, I would make time and effort to take care of the child even if it's not mine. but I need to search my real kid by hiring agents or informing the Authorities involved. this scenario reminds me of that tele-novela that i have watch when i was a kid.....

I agree I would want to know my real child too, but if I had raised the child I would still love it too.
