Bio Mom Wants Contact with my Adopted Stepdaughter
Long story that I'll try to make short. I married my husband when his daughter was 2 years old. We shared custody with his ex for 8 excrutiating years of the child not wanting to spend time with the ex and the ex eventually declining visitation altogether. (She was not a very nice person) The ex then signed away her parental rights and moved away and I adopted my stepdaughter when she was 10 years old. Now our daughter is 16 and the ex is contacting me, wanting to get in touch with our daughter. I feel for her, but our daughter has never asked a single question about bio mom nor has she expressed any interest in seeing her. At this point, my husband and I are not sure if it would be wise for us to even bring this up with our daughter. We do not want to do anything to upset the balance of her life right now especially during the teenage years. However, we do not want our daughter to be upset later in life thinking that we denied her contact with bio mom. What to do?
