Father & Daughter Reunite...& Make a Baby

273911_First One's On Us: Coupon Code: IMEMFIRST

This article is incredibly sad and hard for me to believe they are just so blinded in love. I just wonder the mother's reaction to all this? Can you imagine your daughter calling to say "Guess who I found? My dad and we're gonna have a baby!" What is said below is from an an article and copy and pasted.

It would have been a beautiful reunion story. Last year,Penny Lawrence, 28, set out to find her birth father whom she had never met. From her home in Ireland, she was able to track Garry Ryan, 46, down in Texas. They met, connected ... and then connected a little too much. She's now pregnant with his baby.
It is beyond disturbing and completely and utterly unfathomable to me that something like this could happen, but they act as if it's the most natural, beautiful thing in the world. They say they're in love and deny that it's incest. Instead they say they are victims of Genetic Sexual Attraction. Lawrence told The Sun:
We are not committing incest, but are victims of GSA. We’ve never experienced a father-daughter relationship, so we’re just like any other strangers who meet in adulthood.
Only he's your BIOLOGICAL FATHER. You are not like strangers at all. This attraction may or may not be a real thing, I don't care. Even if you're attracted to someone, YOU DON'T HAVE TO SLEEP WITH THEM. Keep your feelings repressed and move on.
Ryan told the paper:
It’s no different than if I met Penny in a bar. I’d have fallen for her as I have now. It doesn't feel like we are doing anything wrong.
Only it's illegal ... and disgusting.
I'm sure it's tough to grow up without a father, but it still doesn't excuse or explain such a relationship. Apparently Ryan tried to marry Lawrence's mother when she first found out she was pregnant at 18, but he says her family "disapproved of the relationship and didn't want me around." Sounds like they were smart people.
If there wasn't a baby involved, I would be more willing to turn a disgusted blind eye to the whole mess, butwhen you bring a child into it, it's just flat-out wrong. They are clearly not mentally stable enough to serve as parents to this child, and I hope someone intervenes to see that they don't.
Do you think this father and daughter should be allowed to raise their child, who is a result of incest?

WOW!! That is really insane! I cannot believe their defense either.... How disgusting!

That is disgusting, but it totally reminds me of a story I saw on TV in Australia. Daughter left her husband for her dad, Dad left his wife for his daughter. They had a baby and the law intervened to say they are not allowed to sleep together anymore. EEEEEWWWWWWW!!!!!

I know. This story makes me sad. I KNOW they both know better, but makes me sad a father would even overstep his bounds like that and pervert a father-daughter relationship.

That is just sickening. No, I don't think they should be allowed to raise the child. If the father has no brains and is schtipping his own child, what would stop him from having sexual feelings for his child/grandchild?

I worked in a hair salon pre-children and one day had a woman come in for an up-do. She was celebrating her 40th anniversary with her husband. As we talked she said that some years were very hard, especially when he fathered children outside of their relationship. I didn't know what to say, and she comes out with 'but, how can you break apart over grandkids?'. So, I didn't know WHAT to think, and I asked her if he had an affair with a daughter in law....nope, the pig had sex with not one but TWO of his daughters and fathered three children with them. The wife never reported it to police. Instead she said that at least they were able to collect SSI on the three kids. YOWZA!

Wow, Blondee! That's crazy. As a mom I can't imagine letting something like that happen. We are protectors of our children. :( My friend had to report her husband. It was a heart breaking experience, now he is in jail a long time but she protected her daughter. The husband was a childhood friend of mine too so it broke my heart to find out about it. :(

Blondee said...

Good for your friend for being a Mother first!! It's scary to think there are people capacle of such monstrosities against their own children in this world. :(

Mama Duck said...

Wow. That is just so tragic.
I just can't imagine how they're going to explain it to the child as he or she grows up... "i'm your dad, oh, and I'm your grandad too."
The poor child.
Sending some prayer up for them all now. Gee the devil messes with some people!
