Ok, so my daughter is 4 years old and doesn't know her biological father, he hasn't been in her life since she was 5 months old, after I separated from her father I moved out of state and started dating a guy that I had known for a long time, he took on the role of "daddy" and is the only "daddy" my daughter knows. We were engaged to be married and he raised her but now we are no longer together and he is out of state. My daughter asks about her "daddy" all the time and he left on bad terms so I don't know what to say to her. I was thinking it might be time to talk to her about her biological father but I don't know how to do that without confusing her since she has no idea who he is...HELP! I don't want her to be sad and I thought maybe if she knew that the guy she thinks is her daddy isn't her real daddy and she wouldn't be so upset that he is gone, but then i have to worry about explaining why her biological father is gone too...any ideas?
