me eldest jake was 9 wen she left and they always talk on the phone aswell as daniel and josh who were 3 & 4 wen she moved away they see her i have gone to see her from time to time with jake daniel & josh but never taken seb or paris to go see her. my bf has heard about her but never met her in person the 2 younger ones hav heard me talk about but dont really no that she is there sister i told jake daniel & josh that she is living with us and they said they were "stoked" to see her im going to talk to seb and paris later i think this is going to be a very good thing for the whole family especially for daniel cause he only gets along with jake and niki is a really big tomboy

How do you go 10 years without seeing your daughter AND without talking about her enough so that her younger siblings already know of her existence?! My nephew is 19. He has an older half sister that he has never met (live in different countries), but you'd better believe his mom has told him about her from birth and they've talked on the phone and stuff throughout his entire life.

At this point you need to come out and just tell them.

But why do they not know about her has she not been to see you in the last 10 years??

Okay... I have to ask, why didn't you tell them about her in the first place?



And the only thing you can do now, is to sit them down, and tell them, honestly, about her.
