Jan. 31, 1961: Matt Weinstock has an item about author Leonard Wibberley’s experiences in Portugal – recounted in the book “No Garlic in the Soup.”

DEAR ABBY: Help me make a decision that involves a child's future. Sixteen years ago I had an illegitimate son. My whole family knew about it. I refused to give him up for adoption (I was 17) so my parents, God bless them, legally adopted him. When he was 14 months old I married a good man who knew my past but didn't hold it against me. My son grew up believing me to be his sister. I now have four children of my own. They call him "Uncle." I live in fear that one day somebody is going to tell him that I am his mother — not his sister. My husband says the boy has a right to know the truth. I'm afraid he will despise me. What is the right thing to do?
