Never Planned to Say Anything
After the candles were lit and the latkes had been eaten up, the family gathered around on the first night of Chanukah to open the first round of presents. It was a family tradition for everyone to open their presents at the same time. Mom was the only one who wasn’t excited about her gift.
Her children gifted her with an at-home DNA test kit from 23andMe. But Mom was hiding a secret that she had never planned to tell her kids. None of them were actually related to her or each other, because they had all been adopted. It would be too difficult to talk her way out of this one.
