    Default Switched at birth

    If you found out years later that your child had been switched at birth would you want to "swap" children back? Not have anything to do with your biological child or keep our child and just have a different type relationship with the other child?

    Keep the child I have raised. I can't imagine handing over a baby I have held and loved for years. I would be curious about my biological child but wouldn't want to give up my child I had raised

    I would definitely keep the child I have raised. Being a mum means so much more then blood I think. I would be curious about my biological child but couldn't imagine sharing my daughter with another mum so not sure if I would peruse a relationship with the bio child

    This happened to a south african family years ago and one of the mother's ended up with both because her bio child left his raised parents for the better life his bio mum had. It was very very sad especially the rift between bio and raised children.

    I would keep the child I had raised but I'd be devastated that I'd not had my biological child all that time.
    I would hope I'd be able to meet and develop a relationship with my bio child (say like an Aunty type one) and would hope for the same for my child and their bio mum.

    I remember reading something about that. I felt so bad for the abandoned mum

    There is no way I would hand back any of my children biologically mine or not, of course I would be interested in meeting my other child though
