Discovering my dad is not my biological father through a DNA test

  • Published: 25 February 2019
  • This video is the first in a series on discovering my heritage and the search for my biological father. I decided to create this as an outlet to vent about my experience but also to connect with others in similar circumstances. I would love to hear about your story and I'm happy to answer any questions you might have. Please like and subscribe for more videos cataloging this journey.

    Maybe your mother was raped and she did not want to tell you that you are a product of rape. She decided not to abort you.
    Kiss your mother and give her a hug.

      If you are jewish then it will come up ashkenasi jewish from Europe so the Israel part is primarily arab or the old ancient people that is the Israel people that lived in that area. But its sad that you came through this period of time but think about all the great people that comes from your ancestry your ancestry comes from a great history of soliders and many good people. Really good video and KEEP UP YOU ARE STRONG.

          Very sad story. I also feel sad for the man who you thought was your father. He probably didn't even know either. Your mom did a lot of damage to his family for having him believed he had conceived another child with another woman. I am not saying he is all innocent but that is messed up. I hope you find closure and find happiness in the search of your biological dad. Best wishes.

              Maybe your Mom didn't think there was another possibility, and at this point doesn't remember his name. Is it also possible that the father you thought was your father was mislead about his past DNA? These are the questions that came to my mind while watching this.

                Prayers for peace with your situation. I too have a similar story. It's confusing looking in the mirror and seeing the face of someone who I had no idea was my father. The older generation had the choice to hide or reveal the truth, but now as adults we now have the choice how we want to handle our DNA results. I choose to be honest about who I am, I choose not to keep secrets, while being as respectful as possible to the older generation.

                  As an ethnic Jew, I’m so sorry you felt like you lost a piece of your Jewish identity. I struggled with identity my whole life till I found my biological family. (I am adopted.) Learn who you are, what you are, and what ancestors run through your blood. Remember that regardless of who your father is, family is, or what is in your blood you are only who you decide to be. If you are a follower of Y’shua, your identity is found in Him. We have a right to search into our families and ancestry, especially when our parents lie to us our whole lives. Shalom 🖤

                      Everyone keeps saying such bad things about your mum but maybe she kept your biological father a secret to protect you from the truth. I went through something really similar my mum forbade me from getting in contact with my biological father but I went behind her back and met with him... he constantly let me down each time I met with him he even broke my heart twice because I realized that no matter what him he is always going to come first and he could never love me. Lucky thing that my stepfather loved me as his own and gave me all the things that a daughter could ever want.

                                    Your mother gave you life be grateful for that stop complaining it doesn't matter who your father is you know who your mother is and if it wasn't for her you wouldn't be here complaining on a YouTube video show some respect she carried you for 9 months and had to deal with you for god knows how many years 🤬

                                      Her mother let her believe that another man was her father. She didn’t tell her daughter about herself, which she has every right to know.

                                                I am so sorry that you have been lied to. I come from a narcissistic and complicated upbringing as well. Lies and abuse that spans generations. I wish you success in meeting relations who can tell you more about the culture your father came from and specific family history as well. You have a rich heritage to reserach and learn and grow with. I wish you healing and joy. Thank you for sharing such a difficult story, you are helping others! Blessings!

                                                  Sometimes people hide things from their children to protect them, my best friend never knew her father and her mother would never tell her but while staying overnight i over heard her mom on the phone talking about how my friend was conceived through rape. and her mom still to this day never told her about her father and i don’t think she ever will. people always have reasons for hiding or lying. i hope your journey ends well :(

                                                    Hi there, I am experiencing the same sadness. Through a DNA test and consideration of my complexion I believe a different man is my father, 10+ years after my dad stopped caring for me. It’s so painful. It’s not your fault at all. I wish you all the love and strength and we will get through

                                                        sounds like DNA testing is garbage from the two tests saying different things.

                                                                    And I know this comment will probably get lost in the thousands of comments but I am also going through this almost identical situation right this very moment and my mind is running all over the place and I googled “my dad is not my actual dad” and your video came up....

                                                                    My whole life I was told that both of my parents were adopted, so I knew no one genetically beyond my parents. I was also told my father had cheated on my mother and that’s why they weren’t together anymore. My mom was also a single mother and raised me on her own. I didn’t have a father listed on my birth certificate because I always thought my mom didn’t want my father to have parental rights because he cheated on her.

                                                                    Basically my father too was absent for most of my life, in and out. We never really were close, he never treated me badly just was very MIA.

                                                                    Fast forward to 2011, a man reached out to me on social media and claimed to be my biological father. He said he and my mom were living together around the time that I was born and he thought he may be my father.

                                                                    Of course I asked my mother what this guy was talking about and she simply said that he was crazy and her “stalker”. So I figured he was trying to use me to get to her so I blocked him on social media.

                                                                    Fast forward again to 2 years ago, I as gifted a 23 and me DNA kit and a few months ago connected with a woman who was biologically my mothers cousin. Because my mom was adopted I thought it would be interesting to buy my mom a kit and verify that this was in fact my moms cousin.

                                                                    So we did just that and after my mom got her results... I jokingly said to her today “I should get my dad a kit for Father’s Day now” and she said nonchalantly back “oh so you can find out he’s not actually your father” and I was like ummm what? And she said “we talked about this”.

                                                                    I rush to 23 and me and notice that it now breaks down the results by mother and father side of the family, and on my fathers side some of the last names match the man that reached out to me on social media back in 2011.

                                                                    Basically my heart is shattered and I feel devastated that my mother lied to me my whole life. I have so many questions as to why she would keep me around if the guy that impregnated her was actually crazy, why she would lie and say that another man was actually my father.

                                                                    It just makes me wonder, does my dad actually know he’s not actually my dad, is he lying too and that why he was so distant my whole life? I have so many questions that I don’t even know how to bring up to my mother.

                                                                    I know it shouldn’t change anything, my dad and I weren’t even close... but it does because I am super close with my mom and she was the one person I could trust to tell me the truth and she kept this huge secret from me for my whole life. I’m almost 30 years old finding out who my dad really is...

                                                                    This all happened today and like I said this comment will probably get lost and no one will read it but I just needed to tell my story somewhere.

                                                                    Thanks to anyone that actually took the time to read this, I just needed to vent, also thank you for sharing your story.

You don't need hers or anybody's permission to go look your dad up. Regardless of what the media tells you I know and have visited Egypt many times and they are wonderful people regardless of whether they're Muslim or Christian's. You deserve to know where you came from

Your mother is a malignant narcissist and you and everyone around her or malignant narcissistic abuse survivors. Learn about this before you go looking for your Egyptian relatives so that you will understand that she probably pushed your real dad away. Good luck in your journey

Try being adopted and not knowing anything about your background or heritage. You are so much luckier than you believe . Your mother found a man who was not your biological father to love you, raise you, care for you. That being said...your mother owes you an explanation, but you’re an adult and need to realize that the person you are is up to you. As an adopted person, I always have to imagine that I may have been a product of rape. That’ll give you something to be devastated over.

After the war between Egypt and Israel, many Jewish Egyptians either moved away or converted to Christianity or Islam. Your Jewish father could still be of Egyptian heritage.

If he was a bad man or not, she was wrong for keeping it from you and making it about her. I'm sorry, I know she's your mother, but...she's wrong. We don't know her past, but even so, don't do that. Do not make your child feel bad for a mistake YOU as a mother made.

I agree with a comment below: the world is a better place because you are here. Your mom & dad meeting is how you got here, so be happy, you are SUCH A BEAUTIFUL young lady. I would be like a granny to you & I have ALWAYS LOVED VERY DARK EYES, WOW! YOUR EYES ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!

Children are A GIFT from God that they are to raise & teach how to be good citizens on this earth, then they leave “the nest” & live their own lives as God intended. What she doesn’t realize is this: That IS NOT the past, IT IS NOW! You ARE ALIVE, THIS IS YOUR LIFE & your mom OWES YOU THE INFO ABOUT YOUR DAD. If you never came to be alive on this earth, then it might have been “her past” but just because you are here alive, it is your “current life.” You have a husband, that would be your fathers son in law. If you have children, those would be your fathers grand children. No one person has the God given RIGHT to deny access to any other person contract with other family, relatives. If your mom thinks this way, she is very sick & the more contact YOU have with her, the more you will suffer. If you could find another person who could talk to her, or someone who could befriend her & eventually ask & get what info they can from her, that might work better than you doing it. She might be afraid of further contact with him. Did you ever think it might have been he just couldn’t deal with how she is & also he was not able to care for a baby. He may not have had family members here who would help. It’s a “possibility” to consider. I totally get what you’re dealing with, my mom was similar. She thought she could out think everyone else, & she thought more of herself & less of I really know how you feel. I wish I could help you....

My mother allowed my father to raise me with my 3 older sisters, from 18 months old until he passed away when I was 22. She bad mouthed him my whole life, even after he passed away. When i was about 30-31 years old she told my oldest sister she had an affair and that I probably wasn’t my fathers biological daughter. Then a month later she lied to me when confronted and said oh no he is your father. Another 20 years passes, i take 3 dna tests only to find out she lied to my face. I believed I was portuguese, i am actually Italian. The man who was my father passed away 2 years prior to my learning the truth. Angry, i am beyond angry. I love and respect my father even more now that i know he loved me regardless of being aware that he wasn’t my biological father.
