By just looking at the title of this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page, you might think that this teenager is indeed a major a**hole.
But that’s why you gotta read the whole story, friends!
So take a look and see what you think about it…start now.
AITA for telling my stepdad no to adopting me?
“My biological father passed away 9 months ago.
It was really hard for me and my mom. during the time we were healing my mom met a guy, let’s call him Frank. Frank has 3 children, 2 twin boys (age 15) and a daughter (age 8) I’m age 14. I really enjoyed their company. recently my mother and frank announced they are getting married.
I was really happy for them. Last night my mother called everyone down for dinner. My stepdad said he had a announcement and gave me papers. adoption papers.
I looked at him confused and he said “I would like to be your new dad.” I kinda froze for a minute and said “I’m sorry, I’m just still dealing with my father’s death and maybe in the future when I’ve completely healed.”
I handed them back or at least tried. He said “he’s d**d and not coming back, I don’t know what you need to heal from.”
That surprised me. My mother agreed with him. I stood up from the table and threw the papers down and said “until you marry my mother you have no room to adopt me” I said bitterly. I left to stay with a friend.
I’ve been getting calls after calls from everyone saying I have to apologize for what I said. My friend is on my side but said I was out of place for saying that.
Am I the a**hole?”
