Unsure to whom a child should be sealed
Maria Agapita Sanches KNLM-YWW had a daughter Juana who was born in 1908 and died in 1910. In Sources, her birth record indicates no father. Her death record, however, indicates a man named Juan Parra as the father. Also, the 1910 census, also attached in Sources, indicates she is living with an uncle and his family. Census record shows she is divorced with one child who is no longer living. I can find no marriage record for Maria Agapita Sanches and Juan Parra. I'm just not sure he is the father.
My question is: Should I have the child sealed to her grandparents, where the identity of the father is questionable?

It is definitely acceptable to seal a child to her grandparents. Here is a knowledge article that gives reasons and instructions for doing so. There are also related articles, giving you more helpful information.
Keep in mind it is possible to seal a child to more than one set of parents, so if in the future you discover sources proving parentage, you could do that as well.

CJTobler, thank you so much. I loved "as you ponder and consider what is best for your ancestors." I think that's an important aspect of fh work in questionable situations such as I've explained. And thank you for the link!1
