My child is 8, I have been on my own since conception. Literally. The biological father disappeared. He's not listed anywhere because of this. I'm now married, my child thinks of my husband as her Dad.
I have no idea if or when I should talk to my daughter about this. She literally has no idea. The biological father has never appeared, he doesn't even know if I had a boy or a girl. I mean literally gone since conception.
We aren't planning on having any other children. I read some posts about people with a similar issue, and them having other children that wouldn't have this problem. Wanting them to feel equal. The other posts I read, all of them said the biological father was involved at some point, or multiple points when the child was young.
I have nothing, my child has never had any contact with him? I would appreciate any responses. Would also appreciate not being looked down on. This happened during the lowest point of my life. I went though it alone, and I guess deep down I'm not over that.
Thanks for your thoughts.
