This 34-year-old man has two sisters: 31-year-old Jane and 36-year-old Amy. For ten years now, Amy has been trying to have a baby with her husband, but nothing has worked.

Two years ago, Amy tried IVF again, but due to some complications, doctors told her she was sterile.

Amy was crushed, as she and her husband desperately wanted their own family. Amy and her husband then thought about adoption, but this is going to be a lengthy road for them, as Amy’s husband acquired a criminal record at the age of 19.

“A year ago, my sister Jane gave birth to her son Sam,” he explained. “The pregnancy was the result of a one-night stand Jane had during her vacation in Italy, and although it was unexpected and the father wouldn’t be in the picture, Jane decided to keep the baby.”

“Sadly, Jane had a stroke when Sam was 6-months-old and passed away. It was very unexpected, and most of the family is still grieving. After the funeral, we started to discuss who will take Sam in.”

His parents are far too old to raise a child, which meant it was down to him or Amy to step up for Sam.

Amy excitedly said she was happy to take Sam, and it seemed to be a perfect idea initially. But then, as Amy kept talking about the adoption, he thought it was really weird.

Amy insisted on changing Sam’s first and last names before saying nobody should ever talk about Jane once she officially adopted Sam.

“Essentially, Amy wanted to raise Sam as her own and didn’t think telling him his bio mom passed away would do him any good,” he said.
