Great age to unveil the other father figure in her life to her. Let her know that adults aren't always smart when it comes to being in love. But that she was very much wanted and loved when she was born from "being in love with _ _ __. " That he is her biological father. (Don't say Daddy, she has a daddy already) She is very much loved by this father and he wants to see her, would that be okay? Let her decide. She may not be ready immediately, because of her hurt from "Daddy" leaving.
