If i was this lady, I would need a brain wash STAT!….
Valerie Spruill, a Ohio native, is saying that she found out her late husband named Percy Spruill was actually her father after he died from a close uncle.
According to the NYdaily, Valerie learned of her husband’s identity six years after he passed away in 1998 thanks to an uncle who eventually came forward with the the truth. Where she says that she is now going public with her past in the hopes that it will inspire those going through a rough time in their lives.
“I want this to be more of an inspirational story, the 60 year-old told the newspaper. “If I’ve come through this anyone can come through anything through the help of the lord.”
She then added that her grandmother began taking care of her when she was 3 months-old, but it wasn’t until age 9 that Valerie discovered the first of many secrets her family kept from her.
Val’s mom (who died in 1984) and dad (Percy) first started seeing each other when he was 15. It remains unclear how man children they had together, though she says she is aware of six brothers.
In 2004, Valerie confirmed that her late husband was her father with the help of a DNA test. And can’t confirm whether Percy was aware of the extent of their relationship, though she believes he did know and was simply too afraid to tell her.
However, she is still seeing a therapist to help come to terms with the difficult revelation, with hopes of finding more siblings.
“My biggest goal is to find them and let them know that [their mother] loved them, no what.” “And [to day],’Thank God she gave you away like she did me, so you could have a beautiful life.'”
