My ex has decided to allow my husband to adopt my 8yr old daughter. My husband has been part of her life since she was 6 months old so basically he's already her dad. My ex has and would like to continue playing a small role in my daughter's life. My husband and I have decided to go ahead with the adoption especially since my ex is sooo adamant about it happening and soon. We would like some advice on how to tell my 8yr old daughter about the adoption and how to explain that her dad won't be in her life as much as he is now. Thank you in advance.
