After he died at 96, the woman said her son (his grandson) went for a DNA test and discovered he is part Italian. The woman began digging and discovered that the man she thought was her biological father wasn’t. 

The woman’s mother had an affair with her boss and she was conceived. But her father forgave her mother, loved her like his own even though he wasn’t her biological father, and took the secret of his wife’s infidelity to his grave.

Sharing her story, she said: “I think to understand how it happened—you have to know that he adored my mother. They were married for 67 years. He treated her like gold. He always opened doors for her. He did the vacuuming. The grocery shopping. He’d cook us dinner every Saturday.

“He’d come home from work at 5:30, and anything my sister and I wanted to do—he’d do it: play baseball, go to the lake, anything. I never heard him complain. He never once got mad at me. I wasn’t the best driver, and a couple times I crashed our car into a snowbank. But it was always: ‘Are you OK?’ Not once did he say: ‘What’s the matter with you?’ That’s how he was. He was the gentlest man.

“My relationship with my mother could be challenging, and Dad knew that. So he tried to make up for it. He was the one who was always there. He was the one that I could go to for anything. He lived to be 96, and not once in my life did I question that he was my father. 

“The truth only came out after his death, when my son decided to get a DNA test. He discovered that he was one-third Italian, which didn’t make any sense. Because nobody in our family was Italian. He did some research and narrowed it down to four brothers. Their last name was Lombardi.

“That’s when we called my cousin Denise. Her mother had been my mom’s best friend. I asked her point blank: ‘Do you know anything about my biological father?’ There was a long silence. Then I asked her if she’d ever heard the name ‘Lombardi.’ There was another silence, and she said: ‘Mr. Lombardi was your mother’s boss at the jewelry store.’ She went on to tell me that my father had always known. And that he’d decided to forgive my mother. And to raise me as his daughter. And to take the secret to his grave, because he didn’t want to hurt me. 

“I cried when I found out. But that only lasted a minute. Because it didn’t change anything. It didn’t change my amazing childhood. It didn’t change my relationship with my father. Denise told me that she had been there when my parents came home from the hospital. She watched my father carry me in the house. And she said she’ll never forget the look on his face. She’d never seen him so happy in his entire life.”

  1. What a wonderful story but not withstanding, that’s an infidelity, husband and wife ought to trust one another till eternity, he might not be able to complain to her but it’s soar throat which could not be discussed with anyone. Women once you married you no right to be an affair with any other men.

  2. Its very rare to find such men in todays world. The man was a rare gem. Love is a powerful weapon to conquer wrong doing. Some people think that cheating is a sin that can never be forgiven and they go extra mile to do the unimagine, but it is not. When u really love someone and he/she cheats on you, the love u have for that person will overde ur action to her inadequacies. I know of mothers who knows that their husbands have chains of concubines and father children outside their wedlock, yet they still maitain their marriages

  3. Awwww
