I just told my daughter she is adopted.

I am her biological mother but my husband adopted her when she was 2. He's been in her life since she was about 4 months old so she's known no better. All together we have 8 kids and she is the only one who does not biological belong to my husband. She's really upset that we kept it from her all these years but we just wanted her to grow up feeling like she was equal as the other 7 because that's how we see her. Equal. She's not talking to us and there was a lot of yelling :/ 

*She is 16*

I  found out my father wasnt my bio father. I actually wish I was never told. I remember feeling like an outsider ever since.

Where's her bio dad? How old is she?

Don't worry she'll get over it. I'm sure you did what was best for her.

That's so difficult. I might have never told her. Ever.

I wish you would have told her earlier too. It's not like she would love her dad less!

She has every right to be pissed. You lied to her for 17 years, and you expect her to be OK with it?

She should have known all along!
