My DH and I adopted our daughter when she was 1 mo 3 we. Her parents died in a car accident when she was 2 weeks old. The only family that was left was a 19yo sister, who really tried to adopt her but couldnt. A month after we adopted this girl showed up on my door step asking to be in her sisters life, it took so long because the courts wouldnt tell her who we were or where we live, she had to hire a private detective to find us. I let her be in her life, after all thats all the blood relative this girl has. now 2 years later she's still in our lives, shes a really good girl. She helped us buy clothes diapers, formula, etc. She comes to see her at least once a week and takes her if we ever need a babysitter. I consider her a part of the family, she doesnt drink, smoke, party. She has a good job and makes good money. Overall has her life in order and a good girl. I love her but I dont want my daughter to know shes adopted yet and I dont know how to talk to her about it.
how do I tell her that?

You might want to tell the sister what you want to do and tell her not to say anything. Instead of her being sister maybe she will be called aunt.
Your DD will find out eventually she is adopted. Your know that right?
