I HATE stories like this. There is no good way to solve this problem....everyone involved must be devastated.

That is too sad.

I mean at that point what do you do? You are torn between your flesh and blood and the child you have raised for two years.

That would be horrible! I watched a movie about a story like this, and you know as much as I would want the child that was my flesh and blood, but there is no way I could "trade" the kids at that point. I look at my son, if we found out he wasn't ours, omg there is just noo way I could give him up even if it meant getting my bio child back, he IS my child whether he was biologically or not. I think it would be great if the two sides could agree to be friends so both parents can see each child but at the same time allow the parents to keep the child they've raised for so long, it's really no different than an adoption, you become attached to that child regardless of it's DNA.

holy cow, i think i would bawl if this happend to me! I am so attached to my son, if I suddenly found out he wasn't mine, I have to admit I don't think I would be capable of sanely swapping the children. While I would certainly want to have both children(an impossible dream) it would be so weird to meet my bio child and them be a complete stranger to me. I think I would be more comfortable in this situation keeping the child I had raised and trying to be a part of the life of the bio child, would that make me a bad mom to the bio child? Holy crap thats complicated.
