A real life mini-soap opera played out in the comments of a church's Facebook post, and the commenter asked "Am I The A**hole?" for redemption.
The adoptee wrote:
I was given up for adoption when I was a baby by my parents who were 19 years old.
Due to reasons, I was taken from my adoptive parents and put in foster care when I was 11 and remained in the system until I went to college.
When I turned 18, I was given my mother's contact information by someone. I found out she was married to my biological father. They had public profiles on Facebook and Instagram. I ended up messaging my mother who never responded.
I then tried to message my father who basically replied saying that he's sorry but they would rather not have me in their lives. That it took them a while to grieve over giving me up and that they don't want to go through all that pain again.
