What if you just discovered that your beloved baby was switched with your REAL baby in a terrible hospital mixup and you had the choice to send him or her back in return for your biological child or go with it... what would you do?!

First things first, Madalyn is MINE!!

But anyways ... No idea what I would do ... That would be awful! I would think I'd want my biological child ... Hopefully the other family would be good people so I'd feel a tiny bit better ... Yikes, scary thought! Thanks a lot, Kristen!!

Since he looks just like my girls, I'd be wondering where he came from . goodness, this is a hard question. I'm not sure what I would do! I can't even imagine the pain and heartbreak!

I'd kidnap the other one and keep them both

Honestly though, I have no idea. The thought of it is just awful! I couldn't ever imagining giving away Ares. But I also couldn't imagine never seeing my biological child or being able to raise them.

Riah is mine and only mine! I don't think I could send her back, I'd keep em' both too I can't imagine knowing all this time she's not my child, but I'd still love her anyways. I agree, what an awful thought. I'm also glad she never left my room as well (;

I would want my biological baby back. Even though I bonded with Hunter, hypothetical if he wasn't mine and got switched, I'd want MY baby back. Plus I would feel like I owe the other parents the joy of having their baby. I'm thinking of down the road there's no way I could live with a secret like that. And what if some thing health wise happened to him and the doc needed family history. I'd think about all that and return him for my baby, it would be hard because we bonded but the right thing to do. Plus they're little enough I could bond with the other baby pretty fast.

I agree with whoever said that the very thought of it makes me panic!!! I really don't know what I would do. I think a lot would depend on the other family, what their values were like, and whether they were willing to continue to have a relationship with me. We would almost NEED to become a joint family.

Oh goodness, what a scary thought!! I have no idea what I'd do!! And what if, hypothetically, I'd want my biological baby back but the other family wanted to keep her?? Who would have the right to their choice??
Luckily Em never left my side either.

Ditto this

Darn good thing this isn't something I'd actually have to worry about.

I actually dreamed about this a few weeks ago & woke up in such a state...I couldn't stop thinking about it for the rest of the day. At this point, I would want my biological baby back. I love Maxmilian to absolute pieces & it would break my heart, but if I had the chance to 'correct the error' I think I'd have to...I couldn't go through life with that secret. If it were in a few more months though, and I'd spent that much more time bonding with him & loving & nurturing him, I'm not sure I could give that up.

SUCH a horrible situation & I feel so sorry for the people who actually have to go through this. I'm glad it's rare. I still kept Maxmilian at my side the whole time though, lol.

DH and I have talked about this since we did IVF. What if we found out that they used the wrong embryos and these babies weren't biologically ours? What if someone else had our biological babies? I just start panicking about the whole thing and it is too awful to even contemplate...what a horrifying situation

Just the thought of this makes my heart beat faster. There is no doubt that Michael is mine, but I couldn't give him up now either!

KMH, that happened to a dear JM mama I know. I won't disclose details but turned out the doctor contaminated her husband's sperm and they ended up with another man's baby, who her married sister carried for her. They found out after she was born when blood work was done and did not match up, had something to do with RH factor. They eventually were put in a place where they had to adopt their own daughter. It's a pretty big story where because of this woman's lawsuit against this evil doctor, he has lost his license and it has come out that many other parents had contaminated vials as well. I thought of her and it actually sparked this thread.
