I really need some advice. My child is 3 years old, I have not been aloud to be in her life untill I recently took legal action 4 or 5 months ago. Her mother blocked all communication with me up untill 3 months ago. I myself have spent the last 1 and a half years in drug rehab trying to get straight enough to get to see my daughter. Today I'm 1 year and 6 months sober. But my question is when would be the appropriate time to tell my daughter I'm her biological father. My ex has been married since we split up and her husband has raised my daughter to this day, I have no hard feelings against him in fact I would shake his hand and thank him for taking care of her. But he's all she's ever known as a father. I feel that if we told her sooner then later it would be better but I've had some dissapointments with that... I would just like to know... because I'm starting visitations soon. Would it be better to tell her now while she's young... or go years letting her think I'm uncle or her mommys friend and then tell her... I know if it was me that I would rather be told sooner then later because I feel like I would feel betrayed and lied to. But some people seem to think different. I just need some opinions and some advice. Maybe someone who's been in the same shoes or similar. Thanks.
