Recently, I have been watching the The Five television show. It is about a missing boy, and then suddenly his DNA came out from a crime scene. This kid's parents have waited long time for him: his mother always thought that her son would come back one day, but the dad didn't think like that.
There was dialog saying ''Give myself that hope only to have it dragged away?''
What does he mean by that?
1st son: Jessy is alive.
Mother: I told you. I knew he was alive.
Father: It's a mistake.
Mother: Accept it.
Father: Accept that he is alive? Give myself that hope, only to have it dragged away?
