This is going to get really crazy, confusing, and at some point you are going to even think this post is MUD. I assure you...this is real.
My brother who is 33, married with 7 kids (yep, 7 because lets face it 2 or 6 just isn't enough). He and his wife have been having some marriage trouble and have taking time "off" a few times over the last year, the longest being 3 months. All of this is my SIL's doing. She and my brother have been together for a very long time (since high school) and she has been feeling like she isn't "in love" with him anymore. Well, they were a few days away from making the divorce final when my brother drops a HUGE bomb on the entire family.
He has father a child outside of his marriage. A little girl who was born in June. He has had DNA testing to confirm that the child is indeed his and he has full intentions of being a part of this kids life. AFTER he tells his wife this she decides that she in fact does NOT want the divorce and wants him to come home so they can work things out. WHAT? (I would MURDER)
The plot thickens.... the mother of this new tiny person is actually....a stripper. She had made the choice at around 11wks pregnant to place the baby up for adoption until my brother stepped in and would not allow for her to continue(a family was already selected, they even named the little girl, and were ready for her to be theirs). So now the birth mom has the baby full time, my brother is back home, and just had this new baby over the weekend. I, of course, am the bad guy for not coming over and fussing over the baby.
I am just like WTF. WTF?! This is so Days of Our Lives I can't even believe it is MY FAMILY. My hardworking brother, devoted father, husband, and not the one who even wanted to divorce to begin with...I am just...WTF?! Add in the fact that again I have this whole "SERIOUSLY?" I am really the only person in my family who can't produce children just by thinking about sex? I know we were raised Catholic and birth control is a no no thing but ....I mean...at what point do you say to your self a little snip snip wouldn't be such a bad thing??
I maybe an awful person for what I am about to type. I am 100% okay with it. The baby should have went to the adoptive family. My brother should have respected the wishes of the birth mother and agreed to do the open adoption. He is now making her raise a baby she had no intentions of raising and isn't even there to give her the 24/7 support she needs to take care of the baby.
