Our expert says:
If there is an issue of paternity, it is highly suspicous that the woman pretended to agree to the testing, and then avoided enabling it to happen. It sounds highly unlikely that the child is his - if the woman died of AIDS, and knew she was HIV positive, she would, if it was his child, surely have been keen to get the testing done to prove it was his child, so as to protect her child be seing that he would adopt it when she died. That she avoided the testing so carefully, strongly suggests that she knew the child was not his.
Its very sad that the poor child, who is not responsible for its mother's bad judgment, is going to suffer the efects of her unwise actions. He surely ought to get blood testing done on the child, to check whether this is indeed his child. Whether or not it is his child, he will need to decide what he wants to do on the issue of whether or not he will take care of the child from now on.
He must know that testing himself and the child, especially with modern methods should be able to clarify the question.
