I have pondered this question for sometime now. Why did quite a few people refer to Trig as possibly being Sarah’s granddaughter back in 2008? There were references to it on reddit and here and even in the now infamous journolist emails.
I suppose it was just a mistake but a little voice in my head keeps saying “What if it’s not a mistake. What if the first baby referred to as Ruffles since the discovery of the ear deformity is really a girl?”
We all know Sarah’s penchant for lying. We know she lied about being pregnant. We know she most likely lied about Trig’s birth date. Why wouldn’t she lie about the sex of the baby, too?
But what reason would she have to lie about the child’s sex? Sarah doesn’t really need a reason to lie but if she knew beforehand that Ruffles would only be with them a short time and she knew the replacement was a boy, then she had to present Trig as a boy.
Also, if someone noticed that Ruffles was missing then everyone would be looking for a boy. And this horrifies me to even think about, but if a tiny baby girl’s body were found, then no one would connect it with the missing baby boy Ruffles. At least that’s probably the way Sarah would think.
This is one hunch I truly hope I am wrong about.
