Quoting .:Mary:.:" My oldest sister is not my dads biological daughter. She was 3-4 when my mom met my dad. I'm not sure ... [snip!] ... letter we asked why she didn't want to respond, she simply stated that we were het family. I respect her decision and will ack"
My sisters were both older when my parents got together (they have a different bio-dad than I do). My dad adopted them and they have his last name. I didn't know that were "half sisters" with me until I was a teenager...
It affected one, she is now in touch with her "dad's" family, but wanted nothing to do with him (he died recently). My other sister doesn't care.
Novali's father was extremely abusive and tried to kidnap her... she has nightmares still sometimes of him trying to kill me and take her away. She will never have that option of seeing him or knowing him. I feel sad that it has to be that way.
