My daughters father was a one night thing 2 months before I moved out of state. I did not know I was pregnant until I went to the hospital thinking it was pancreatitis. I have my beautiful little girl now and she is everything to me and my family. The problem is I never told her actual father about her. He is not a bad guy and has two girls of his own who look remarkably similar to my daughter. My daughter is five now and is really starting to ask questions and my family is really pushing me to tell the father. Not for financial reasons but because they don't want her to feel like the only kid in the world who knows nothing about her dad. I believe the reason I have kept it a secret so long is because I want my family and me to be all the love and support she needs. I just don't want to share my beautiful girl with someone who lives 1,000 miles away that I hardly know. I also don't want her do be deprived of anything. Please help me figure this one out. What should I tell my daughter and should I even ever tell her dad?
