  • How old is she? Allowing a child to call another man dad is confusing to the child. You didn't say you married the man so he wasn't her step dad, he didn't adopt her. That's just harmful to her and hurtful to the bio dad. Sorry if that sounds mean but now you have to back up and regroup and help her understand who is who. Please be careful with that if bio dad leaves and another man comes into your life.
