What would you do if it was proved today that your first born was switched at birth?
I just opened my email and there you were, popped up on my screen in response to my google alert for "switched at birth." I've been immersed in this topic for seven years, ever since learning at age fifty that my mother left the hospital with the wrong child, me.
I'm editing the memoir that emerged from that experience. The title is "Who You Are, A Memoir: On Being Switched At Birth and How It Changed My Life." I'm publishing independently, and it should be available by Christmas. You can get more information on my attached website. The site should be active in the next few weeks. Or send me a note and I'll let you know when the book's available.
As far as a specific response to your question, I would be as lost and unsure as much as the other people who have submitted a response, and no doubt as much as the woman was who raised me, my adoptive mom.
If your child got switched at birth would you switch it back?
I would hire a really good private eye to look into the back ground of the other parents and see if they are good parents.. if they were I would honestly leave each child where it was.. you bring a child home for a day or a year or five minutes that child is yours and do you really want to give it back?
Does anyone know when te next season of Abc Family's Switched At Birth is going to start?
It'll still be the same season, but i'm guessing it'll start in January. ABC Family does that with most of their shows. They start in the summer and air the first half of the season, and then they take a pretty long break and air the remaining half of the season starting in January.
What would you do if you found out your baby was switched at birth?
I would pray that the other parents were good and raised my child well. And I would hope that we could find a way to stay in the same area so we could keep in touch. But if I had enough time to bond and fall in love with the other baby and if the babies had time to get attached to their families - I would probably continue raising the other person's baby as my own.
I hope to never be in a situation like that. And I think the chances of it happening are lower nowadays - at least in my town where they discourage even putting babies in the nursery to begin with. My daughter only spent a couple of hours away from me in the hospital, when I was totally exhausted. And of course the little ones that have problems at birth spend a little time in the nursery. But it isn't anything like on tv where you see a room full of babies.
yes, they could sue for the child. you could also sue for your child. highly unlikely for them to sue though. and it's also highly unlikely that your child would be switched at birth. hardly ever happens, don't worry :)
