What happens when you find out that you're the child of infidelity? That's the situation that a 15-year-old found himself in when his mom revealed that his father isn't actually his biological parent. As a result, the teen was shipped off to live with his grandparents and has been treated poorly by everyone in his life ever since. Feeling like an outsider in his own family, the teen decided to seek out his biological father without telling his mom and dad. After a successful DNA test, the teen has started spending time with his new family, but things have come to a head now that the secret is out. Was the teen wrong to seek out his biological father? Or is he justified in feeling like he doesn't belong in his current family? Read on to find out.
