paternity test

Got pregnant. Told my bf. Foundout it was from a onenight stand before i started dating my bf. Bf and i almost had an abortion when we thought it was ours. Already emotionally attached to the idea of being pregnant, we decided to keep the baby and my bf would be the father.

I never told the real father it was his. I simple stated that it was a possibility. He agreed to take a paternity test and sign off of his rights. But that was before she was born. now i dont want to contact him forthe test in fear that hell change his mind out of nowhere. I dont want him to have anything to do with her due to how he acted when i told him the news. As far as im concerned, he already made up his mind. My bf and i are happy and want to provide her with a stable home.

Am i being selfish? There's a part of me that feels i should have tried harder to get him to want to play a part. But when i see my bf wuth her i care very little about her biological father.

One word. YES.

You don't have the right to make the decision whether or not to allow her biological father in her life. If the paternity test shows it was your one night stand, then so be it, he's the father, and HE'S GOT RIGHTS.

It doesn't matter how YOU feel about him, the fact is that if the child is HIS, he's got just as much right to be a parent as you do.

get the test done, and if he decides he does want his rights, get custody/support & visitation set up from the get go.
