Sara Genge. Sins of the Father. (Asimovs, December 2010).

A young, exiled merman makes a heartfelt plea to his mother for understanding, but not for his own personal benefit. In doing so he relates his life among humans, and his falling in love.

You would think it a fantasy story, but there are one or two references during the story, until all is revealed in the closing paragraphs.

It’s a touching story of alienness, integration, longing, loss and sacrifice.
