So here is my situation. My daughter is almost 4 years old. I was 19 years old when I became pregnant with her. Her biological father is not in the picture at all. Him and I were never in a relationship, but when I found out I was pregnant, I did the right thing and I told him about it. He immediately took off, and he has not contacted me since January 2010 (She was born March 2010), nor have I contacted him.
In December 2010, while I was 6 months pregnant, I met someone. This man and I are still together. He was with me in the delivery room when I had my daughter, and he has raised her as his own since the minute she was born. He is an amazing man, and I couldn't ask for a better father than him for my daughter.
Now, since then we have had 2 more children together. And my dilemma is when do I tell my daughter that this is not her biological father? As far as I am concerned, it is up to her when she is old enough to decide whether or not she wants to make contact with her bio dad. I will support her decision and help her if I can. But for now, all I know is I should tell her the truth, I just don't know when is best?
