After giving birth, one woman realized her child's race didn't match that of her own or her husband's, causing him and his mother to reject the baby. Later, the woman didn't want her mother-in-law to bond with the child because she never apologized for rejecting her granddaughter.

A woman got married while she was still in her teens, later giving birth to a baby girl. However, the child seemed to be an entirely different race than her mother and father, causing serious conflict between the two.

The woman's husband rejected the child after his side of the family tried to intervene. Enraged, the dad refused to have his wife come home with their child and accused her of cheating, which resulted in her getting bad-mouthed on social media.

The woman spent some time away from home and had to go to great lengths to prove that her husband was the father of their baby. However, after she was welcomed back home, she refused to let her mother-in-law visit to bond with the child.

How a Woman Ended Up Denying Her Mother-in-Law Visits with Her Granddaughter

On September 26, 2021, a Reddit user with the username Mundane_Waltz1106 took to one of the platform's communities for advice. The user revealed that she was a 21-year-old woman who had been with her 29-year-old husband since she was 18.

The pair married when the woman was 19, and they had a good relationship based on trust. However, things changed when the couple's first-born child emerged with brown eyes, dark skin, and thick, dark, curly hair.

Seeing as the child's mother and father were both white with light-colored hair and eyes and white skin, the child's appearance caused a stir. Everyone believed the mother had cheated on her husband, despite her denying it, and she recalled:

Her husband even left her alone at the hospital after their daughter was born because his mother convinced him to. The woman didn't receive any visitors in the hospital because her mother-in-law shared images of the child on social media and called her a cheater.

The new mom wasn't aware that her mother-in-law took photos of her child. When she tried texting her husband, pleading with him to get a DNA test, he ignored it, saying she had to stay at her sister's house for a month instead of returning home.

She eventually convinced him to get the test, and it proved "without a doubt" that he was the little girl's father. Upon getting the results, her husband apologized "profusely" and allowed her to return to their home, but their relationship had changed.

The poster confessed that she felt differently toward her husband ever since he rejected her when their daughter was born. Despite the DNA test, the woman's mother-in-law continued saying she had cheated and even used racial slurs when talking about her granddaughter.

The husband's mother continued to use derogatory terms to describe her granddaughter and spread rumors that the DNA test was fake. The mother-in-law went as far as saying she'd never treat the child as her granddaughter.

One day, the mother-in-law suddenly asked if she could visit and even referred to the child as her granddaughter. The 21-year-old felt uncomfortable with this sudden change in demeanor and refused the visit.

Her husband reacted in anger and felt the visit would've given his mother a chance to bond with their daughter. He said it was the child's right to know her grandparents. Despite this, his wife still felt uncertain, especially because her mother-in-law had never apologized.

Because of this, the woman turned to Reddit to find out if she did the right thing. She wanted to know if she was being terrible for not allowing her mother-in-law to visit her new baby.

What Did Reddit Users Think about the Woman's Refusal to Allow Her Mother-in-Law Visits with Her Grandchild?

Many Reddit users entered the comment section to share their thoughts about the woman's actions. One urged her to "get a divorce," claiming she had every right to react the way she did.

Someone with the username LailaBlack also said the woman was right and should take screenshots of the racial slurs used by the mother-in-law, as it may come in handy in the eventuality of divorce, adding:

The follower felt the woman's actions were justified and asked why she hadn't divorced the "mama's boy yet." The same person also expressed concern over the woman marrying the man when she was 19 and he was 26.

Meanwhile, someone quipped that the man was a "real keeper" after he abandoned his wife at the hospital following the birth of their child. The Reddit user also couldn't believe the woman's husband kicked her out of their house for a month after she'd given birth.

The follower believed the mother-in-law had continuously proven how "racist" she was by using racial slurs and refusing to acknowledge her granddaughter. Another Reddit user also felt the woman wasn't in the wrong, but her husband was.

A social media user shared how they wouldn't want to be in a relationship with someone who treated them the way the poster had been handled.

Other comments urged the woman to get primary custody of her child and to document everything her husband and mother-in-law did to her and her daughter.

One person believed any man who kicked their wife out after she'd just given birth to his child was a "monster." The social media user added that the woman's husband couldn't be "so wet behind the ears" to pin all the blame on his mother. The commenter believed the woman was being mentally abused by her husband and his family.

Someone with the username FutureLog2849 felt Mundane_Waltz1106's daughter was "defenseless and vulnerable," implying she had to ensure her baby's safety.

The Reddit user said the child also relied on her mother for protection from people like her grandmother and father, adding, "You know they are abusive because they have verbally and emotionally abused YOU."

The mother-son pair are believed to be untrustworthy. A social media user shared how they wouldn't want to be in a relationship with someone who had treated them the way the poster had been handled.

Users indicated that no one should go along with how the mother and her child had been treated by their family. One follower judged the child's grandmother and said the poster wasn't bad for refusing the mother-in-law to spend time with her granddaughter.

Instead, the Reddit user believed Mundane_Waltz1106 would've been bad if she'd let her "defenseless child" be exposed to someone who was "as blatantly toxic and abusive" as their grandmother.
