A father’s relationship with his children is a beautiful bond that cannot be easily broken. But what if on one day, a dad discovers that the child he brought up is not his? This is precisely what happened to one devastated man.
Richard Mason is a devoted father, but he discovered that the three sons he had raised for more than 20 years were not his when doctors told him he had been infertile since birth. He never doubted he was the boys’ biological dad until three years ago when he was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.
His diagnosis led to DNA and other tests which confirmed Mason has no biological link to the eldest son, now 23, and the 19-year-old twins, who he’d helped to raise with ex-wife Kate.
The 55-year-old MoneySupermarket.com co-founder thinks the biological father of the boys is the same man who Kate had an on-off affair with for four years during the late 90s.
Mason had already been divorced from his ex-wife for ten years when he discovered the truth.
“You don’t know what’s real and what isn’t – it’s as if I’m living in The Matrix. Someone says to you, ‘All that you know and everything you thought to be solid and true is not real, and never did exist. You are not a father, you are not able to have kids, your name will not continue.'”
Feeling betrayed and brokenhearted, Mason decided to sue his ex-wife. Kate has been ordered to pay him US$ 318,250 following a rare paternity fraud case that has allowed her to keep the identity of the real father a secret.
After finding out the cruelest truth, Mason revealed that things have never been the same.
“I still see what the boys are doing on Facebook, and it’s heart-wrenching because we saw the graduation of the eldest on there, but I wasn’t invited.
I walk past a toy store, and it reminds you of buying Christmas presents for them and other family occasions.
And when friends post things on Facebook about their own families like their first grandchild or saying they’re proud of their boy for something, I just think, ‘My God, that’s all been taken away from me.'”
