Co-Workers Discover They Are Father And Son After Working Together For Two Years.

Surprising Conversation

Nathan started the conversation by asking Robert if he knew a certain woman, saying “I just found out that she’s my biological mother. My mom told me last night.” Robert couldn’t believe what he was hearing, especially considering that he actually did know Nathan’s biological mother.

Birth Mother

In a strange turn of events, Robert explained that Nathan’s birth mother was actually Robert's ex-wife. The pair decided to move the conversation to the telephone, where Robert explained to Nathan that his birth mother had gotten pregnant while they had an unstable relationship and they weren’t able to financially support a child.

Nathan then learned that his birth parents found out that they would have to have an emergency C-section and that Nathan would end up being born prematurely. The couple wasn’t sure what kind of health problems Nathan was going to end up having, which could be extremely costly, so they decided to give him up for adoption.

The Choice

“Back then I wasn’t much of a dad. His biological mom had chosen the adoptive parents because they were somewhat related. Distant cousins, I believe, but I didn’t know that,” said Robert in an interview. He also explained that he had wondered what had happened to his biological son many times throughout his life.

Proud Father

As of August 2018, Robert and Nathan were still trying to work through their shocking realization. It was hard for the pair to understand how they had known each other for two whole years without realizing how similar they really were. Needless to say, Robert is more than proud of Nathan for becoming a successful, hard-working man.
