Woman Asks If She Was Wrong for Raising Her Sister's Twin Boys, Despite Her Wanting Them Back
Life can throw unexpected surprises, and for two sisters, an unplanned pregnancy became a turning point. In a heartfelt Reddit post, a woman (OP) shares her story about how her younger sister became pregnant at 17 and had twins. But it was clear she wasn't ready for motherhood. With their mom often absent and their own mother having early-onset Alzheimer's, OP stepped up. Fresh out of university, she put her career on hold to care for two newborns and her ailing mom.
A few years later, OP legally adopted the twins and married a man who loved them like his own. They had a daughter together, and life seemed good. But when OP decided to move her family an hour away and place her mom in a care facility, her sister suddenly wanted the twins back. Her sister demanded the kids, causing family drama. OP felt torn; she'd raised these kids, and they called her "mom. Now OP faced pressure to give them to a sister who hadn't been around much.
With family taking sides and legal threats, OP turned to the internet, asking, "Am I wrong? The big question here is: What truly makes someone a parent? Is it biology or the years of bedtime stories and scraped knees? Keep scrolling to watch how the story unfolds and what the internet has to say about it.
OP's younger sister had twins when she was 17, but it became evident shortly after their birth that she wasn't fully prepared for the responsibilities of being a mother.
A few years later, OP officially becomes the legal parent of the twins. She even marries a man who fully embraces the role and treats the twins as if they were his own.
Out of nowhere, the sister suddenly expressed a strong desire to re-enter the twins' lives.
How ridiculous is this?
OP has offered the following explanation for why they think they might be the asshole:
