Can some wrongs be forgiven? A story recently broke about an 18-year-old girl who found out she was abducted when she was just a couple of hours old. In a recent interview, the abducted girl, Kamiyah Mobley (known as Alexis Manigo), defended her abductor…her mom.
“From that one mistake I was given the best life,” Kamiyah said. “She loved me for 18 years. She cared for me for 18 years.” She also added that she’d like to get to know her biological parents but she will always love her mom that raised her.
I also recently watched a documentary called Stories We Tell by Sarah Polley which recounted the story of her mother’s affair which led to her birth. A secret her older brother was keeping about her now deceased mother opened up the past life about her mother no one knew about. Sarah ended up meeting her real father and was then forced to tell her biological father who was extremely understanding of the situation. He surprisingly thanked her biological father because, without him, Sarah wouldn’t be the person she is today–the daughter he loved so dearly.
Both stories lead me to this question. Can some wrongs be forgiven? I am certain not too many people would forgive an abduction even at the request of the abductee. I also feel forgiving an affair which led to a child is difficult as well. So is it case-by-case or are there lines that can never be crossed regardless of the circumstances? I want to know your thoughts. comment below.
