Some of you all might know my story, some do not. That is why I am /anon with this.
My ex and I split when I was 30 weeks pregnant with our daughter. He has never played an active role in her life. He's only seen her one time since her first two weeks of life and we live about 40 minutes away from each other. No phone calls, emails, nothing.
Ex and I both re-married shortly after our divorce was final.
Ex contacted me shortly before Christmas, informed me that his wife was 7 months pregnant, and that he wanted to relinquish rights to our child and do a step-parent adoption with my husband. Of course we were thrilled, but I have to admit I was left wondering about this new baby.
The new baby was born within the last few days. We still haven't filed all of the paperwork for the adoption, so therefore we still have to talk to my ex a couple of times. At the moment we are busy gathering documents and finishing the last load of papers. However the consents are signed so there is really no chance in him changing his mind.
Do you think it would be wrong for me to ask the name and birth date of this new baby? I don't even know if it's a boy or a girl. I ONLY want the information to give to my child some day so that there is some sort of info on the sibling. But I am not sure if I should ask, or if I am wanting for "too much". And I have a feeling if I don't do it now, then I might not ever get the chance.
