** Averted with [[spoiler:Quint Nakajima]], who took in two combat cyborgs she rescued from an illegal research facility and raised them as her daughters, only to later discover that they had been illegally cloned from her. We never do find out how she felt about having her DNA used for making SuperSoldiers, but she definitely didn't hate her children for it. [[GoodParents Quite the opposite, actually]].

* Played with in the ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'' book ''Foxglove Summer'': A woman whose daughter went missing [[spoiler: when she followed a unicorn to Fairyland]] is adamant what what returned isn't her daughter. It turns out [[spoiler: her daughter ''was'' replaced by a changeling, but that happened eleven years earlier; the magical nightmare now in her house ''is'' her biological daughter. Once this is explained to her, she still says that her ''real'' daughter is the girl she raised, wherever she came from.]]

Do not confuse with IHaveNoSon, in which the parent disowns a disappointing child. See also ClonesArePeopleToo, in which a person doesn't actually consider said clone family, but nonetheless respects their right to live. If a parent maintains that it '''is''' their child, dispite bad behavior, it's MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal.

* Averted in the Literature/VorkosiganSaga. In ''Brothers in Arms'', Miles discovers that a Komarran terrorist cell has cloned him as part of a Byzantine plot. Miles immediately declares the clone his brother, informs him of the automatically-determined DeadGuyJunior name Vor tradition gives him (Mark Pierre), and goes out of his way to protect and support Mark. His mother Cordelia does the same when she meets Mark. His father Aral is more skeptical; he feels a sense of responsibility, but also admits that he doesn't love Mark the way he does Miles. Eventually even Aral acknowledges Mark as a son. (Rather heartwearmingly, in fact-- somebody comes complaining to him about 'your son' and he asks "which one" ''completely'' offhandedly.)
