How to use "By-blow" in context?

The term "by-blow" is used to describe a child who is born to parents who are not married to each other. This can often involve a child being born out of wedlock and can cause a number of issues for that child, namely social isolation and a lack of support. There are a number of reasons why parents may not be married, and it is not always clear which parent is responsible for the child. If one of the parents is not around, the child may be placed with the other parent. If that parent is not able to care for the child, then the child may be placed in a child welfare system.
