I have had my daughter since she was 6 months old. She is now 3 and a half. we finalized adoption in april of 2009! My daughter is actually my blood niece and has 3 sisters that live with their fathers. My question is when and how should I start telling her more details. She does see her birth mother from time to time b/c she is my sister. She also sees her sisters fairly regularly and knows that her sisters and her came from her "aunts" tummy, not mine. Is it horrible of me to refer to her birth mother as her aunt? Her brothers, my birth children call her aunt because she is their aunt and so my ad naturally refers to her as aunt as well...What suggestions does anyone have for me about anything and everything. I was considering starting a family counseling so we could begin talking about it. All suggestions welcome!!!
