I may write more about l’affaire Michael Jackson, but I want to wait to see what Debbie Rowe does before I go at it again. If she’s a decent human being, she’ll step out of the picture, even if it takes a few hefty bankers to push her out of the frame. The play-for-fame womb renter (evidence pending) doesn’t deserve our concern outside of the harm she is capable of causing. The kids, do, though. Kids–none of us– deserves to have our DNA, family relationships and humanity exposed, yanked from our control, and broadcast as an international bread and circus. Losing the dad you love is scary enough without being served up as a genetic dog and pony show for the masses.
To that end, I want to point out, Lindsay Greenwalt’s A Letter to Prince Michael, Paris and “Blanket” Jackson on her Confessions of a Cryokid blog, telling them (should they read it some day) and us, that they and we are not alone.
By now you have probably heard all the major media outlets advertising that your dad is not your biological father, and that your mom is not your biological mother. I can only imagine how hard this must be, just days after your dad tragically died.,,
But don’t feel alone. There are thousands (maybe millions) of kids out there just like you – conceived artificially and denied the right to EVER know who their biological parents are…
Your daddy will always be your daddy, nobody can take that away – and it will take time to mourn his passing. But you also have a biological father out there, and you carry half his genes. His is part of you – he even looks like you! While nothing can mask the loss of your daddy, I hope that your biological father will step up and give you guidance and love, and support through this rough time and as you grow up. You deserve that as children and as human beings….
Cryokids, bastards, anyone who has had their identity engineered by biology, statute, or for-your-own-good should have each other’s back. Our families are expansive and so are our arms.
