BIZARRE: OHIO WOMAN DISCOVERS HER LATE HUSBAND IS HER BIOLOGICAL FATHER (2856 hits)

USAToday.com--An Ohio woman is so horrified by a recent revelation that she has had to seek therapy.Valerie Spruill found out that her late husband was also her biological father. A DNA test has confirmed that 60 year old Spruill was married to her father, Percy.

The Doylestown, Ohio resident has three children and eight grandchildren. She is now on a mission to find her other siblings from her Father.

Speaking to the Akron Beacon Journal, she said,

“It needs to be told, because children need to know where they come from. And I know it hurts, because I have been devastated by this.”

Since she was three months old, Spruill has been taken care of by her grandparents. Her mother was what she calls a “night-lady” and her father (also her husband) was only 15 years old when he was intimate with her mother.

The distraught wife and daughter of the late Percy knows of six brothers but is still looking for more of her siblings.

While being raised by her parents, Spruill’s mother visited her frequently but she always thought that she was just a family friend. It was not until she was 9 years old that she found out that their family friend, Christine, was actually her mother. Christine passed away in 1984. That was when Valerie became aware that the man she thought was her father was actually her grandfather. Because she did not know who her father was, she later met and married him.

Valerie Spruill’s husband (and father) died in 1998 after being ill for a short time. After hearing rumors that her husband may have been her father, Valerie found his hairs on an old brush and got them tested. The tests revealed that he was indeed her father.

The confusing part of Valerie’s story is that she suspects that her husband knew he was her father but was afraid to tell her. Since her husband’s death and finding out that he was her father, Valerie has sought therapy to deal with the new information and process it. Valerie has also had several health issues which she attributes to the stress of finding out that her late husband was her father.

She hopes that telling her story will help her reach more of her siblings that she didn’t know existed.

‘My biggest goal is to find them and let ’em know that [their mother] loved them, no matter what,’ she said. ‘And [to say], ‘Thank God she gave you away like she did me, so you could have a beautiful life.’

SMH...It saddens me to see how people go through life never knowing who their biological parents (or relatives) are. May this story prove a point that parents need to STOP keeping family secrets, STOP withholding the truth, and be honest with their children.
