    I'm pretty sure that my father is my biological father, even tho i sometimes wish it wouldn't be that way.

    The first study linking surnames to Y-DNA haplotypes has been released. Scientists calculated the probability of illegitimacy between 1% and 4% - lower than expected.

    The Independent : Study kills '1 in 10' myth of cuckolded fathers

    It is one of the world's most persistent myths: that one in 10 children are illegitimate without their legal fathers knowing that they have been cuckolded. Now scientists believe they have arrived at the real figure. One in 25.

    Scientists analysed the Y chromosomes of 1,600 unrelated men with 40 surnames to test the idea that there could be a link between the Y chromosome and surnames, which are both passed on to boys down the male line.
    ...
    This also enabled the scientists to estimate the probability of illegitimacy among the men carrying the same surname and found that it came out at between 1 and 4 per cent.

    I would assume that the belief that 1/10 fathers don't raise their biological kid is because up till recently, DNA tests were done by fathers or kids doubting already, and if u have reasons to doubt i guess it's more likely to be correct. If someone doesn't have reasons to believe that his father/son is not his biological one then he wont take the DNA test and that leads to false statistic results showing higher % of fathers raising someone else's kid. Now that people start taking DNA tests for other reasons (ancestry, mutations, diseases) and at the same time, why not, paternity test the results show that the real % is actually lower than 1/10.

    Any idea what are the chances of babies being given to wrong parents at the delivery hospital?! Someone would assume its highly unlikely, almost impossible, but If the % is higher than expected then a father who finds out his kid is not his biological one should consider a maternity test also if his wife denies she cheated on him, before getting a divorce...

    I did DNA to resolve a family mystery. I got the answer I wanted, but I can begin to imagine what others who get a surprise may feel.

    Hmm ... Babies switched in hospitals is very unlikely.
    When my first daughter was born, the voice made an immediate imprint.
    After a day, I came to visit the hospital again to see my wife, and my daughter.
    So, a nurse came with a cart with 9 babies in.
    The were all screaming like hell, because they were hungry I guess.
    The nurse asked me to pick out my own kid, and I immediately did.
    As a father recognizes his own child, I guess that would even be stronger for the mother.

    But there can be other psychological reasons why parents sometimes kind of reject their own kids.

    Well, I also wonder why getting a DNA test would prove anything?
    Don't get me wrong.
    The mother could have had a party with the brother of her husband..
    Nobody would notice the difference..

    On the other hand it has happened that 3 brothers did a YDNA test, and 1 brother had a different YDNA than the other two. That's proof their mother went shopping somewhere else.

    I already know my Dad is not my Biological Father, me and my Mom had a violent and neglectful past living with my Biological Dad leading to a divorce at the age of 2 never saw my Biological Father since and I ended up being raised by a Shoulwater bay tribal chief's grandson so I was kind of adopted.
