I agree w/ Jane. What you say depends on what the truth is... I'm a big believer in the truth, but just how MUCH truth and when... depends on the situation.

What you say rather depends on where her father actually is as well as why you are not with him. Whatever you tell her make sure you never let her think it was her fault in any way.

My children are both adopted, and they started asking questions about their birth parents when they were about four. Younger than that they simply accepted our family as it was, even though we were always completely open about adoption.
