Birth family introduction

My daughter's 1/2 siblings requested to meet her recently. We have been blessed with a wonderful relationship with the birth mother but until recently her other daughters 11 and 17 were unaware of our daughter. When the birth mother told them they requested to meet her. While a part of me was hoping for a little more time before this introduction. Her two sisters are as beautiful as their mother. The children had great fun. Amazing how similar all of them look.

Both of our children are adopted and they know who their bio-families are. Perhaps a way to make the introductions easier on you and them is to get together at a park or "play-place" where your daughter and her bio-family can meet and play together. Keeping an open mind is best as your daughter will eventually want to know where she "comes from" and who this bio-family is.

As I said our children (more the older one) knows that she didn't come from my "tummy" but that she has a "tummy-sister". Her bio-sister doesn't call herself that but in the future, when we get together we (my husband and self) will have to express to our children's bio-families that this is how we refer to them. They are not (legally) siblings but they are tied in family history and genetics through their "tummy-mommies". Our children look astonishing like their sibs but that is to be expected.
