I was raised by my grandparents. I always knew I had a father, but he was never discussed and my grandmother's response was always, "she doesn't have a father". It was actually an aunt (grand-aunt, technically) that told me. I was sixteen and on winter break from boarding school, I asked her about my father because I had come to a point where I wanted to know where I came from. I was tired of wondering and she was the type to tell. My grandparents, after I confronted them, gave me more details. [ Reply | More ]
