It would be surprising as well as upsetting to learn that your children were not biologically yours after having carried them for nine months in your womb. But how can your child not be biologically yours if you were the one to give birth to them? Strangely, a mother in Washington State found herself at the center of this kind of intriguing story. Between almost going to jail and almost losing her children, here’s what Lydia Fairchild had to deal with.

It would be upsetting and perplexing to learn that your infants were not genetically yours as a mother who carried them in her womb

Lydia Fairchild, a resident of Washington State and a young mother, was really shocked when she received the genealogy results of her children in 2006. The results stated something she couldn’t bear to acknowledge, and it began steadily eroding her sense of self-awareness. According to the report, there was no genetic match between Lydia Fairchild and her children.

All she could say was- “I knew that I carried them, and I knew that I delivered them. There was no doubt in my mind.”

It all began when Fairchild applied for financial assistance from the state

It all began when Fairchild sought state financial aid from the state. Lydia was 26 at the time and had no job to support herself or her kids. Applying for financial assistance for children includes DNA testing to prove that the parent and children are biologically related.

She had to show that the children were all hers, so they did a DNA test as part of the process. Initially, she thought that the social services’ request to meet with them was merely another bureaucratic formality. But, much to her surprise, she ended up being drawn into a criminal investigation.

Lydia said- “As I sat down, they came up and shut the door, and they just went back and just started drilling me with questions like, ‘Who are you?’”
