I have a child I didn't know I had...please help!

Questioner: Tony


Subject: 4 year old

Question:
Hello I was wondering if you could offer a timeline for me. I have recently found out that I have a daughter that I didn't know anything about I do have two other girls and would like to introduce them as a family.

The problem is how, when and where should the first meeting be? What about the next meeting and so on?

I have learned that the mother is in jail and i have started court proceedings for custody.

Any help would be great.

Even a website that could suggest a possible timeline for such.thank you very much,
Tony


Answer: Dear Tony:

I don't know that there is a timeline for something like this and there probably could not be. I would suggest you move from your heart. I sounds like you want to be a family and have a desire to do what is best for them. Children are rather uncomplicated, be real, be honest, love them lots and be there for them.

You will have to figure this one out be just being.

Come back here whenever you need to to ask more questions about their behavior or specific parenting skills.

Best Wishes!
