How should I handle this situation?

My daughter will turn 2 on sept 23 and her biological father has never met her. He left when I was 1 1/2 monthes pregnant and now he's wanting to meet her and be in her life.

I'm not sure I want him in her life but I also don't want her to hate me later for not allowing him the chance to make it right.

To make it more confusing.. I'm engaged to an amazing man that has been with me since I was 4 months pregnant and he wants to adopt my daughter. The only problem with this is that he says if he adopts her shell be his and won't be allowed to meet her biological father. I don't feel that's his choice but I am trying to keep the peace in my relationship and not make the wrong choice..

Would love to hear from women that have been in this situation and what they decided. Thank you

I have never been in this situation, but I don't think it's right that you keep her from her biological father. It will just cause problems down the road. You are right to say it's not your fiancee's choice. It's YOUR choice. And your daughter deserves to meet her real father.
