Did not quite know how to word it. I placed baby Zoe at birth on June 9th of this year. Still in my care is my daughter who is almost 4. Both children have the same father (my stbx husband). I am at odds with some of my family's reaction to telling my older daughter that I had to place her baby sis. My grandmother feels that it has only opened up trouble by telling her that I "chose her over baby"(her words, not mine). But even though my older child does not quite understand, I tell her that her sissy went to go live with a special mommy and daddy. So, anyways, my daughter is aware that her sis lives with someone else and it may be a long time before she gets to see her. But my grandmother was against me telling her and felt that my daughter was young enough to forget I was even pregnant, she even suggested I tell my child she dreamed that I was having a baby and it wasn't real. I feel that my daughter has a right to know about her sis. It is her sister, after all. They both have two half-sisters who live with their mother in another state. My daughter knows about them, how is Zoe any different? Has anyone else had this trouble with older family members when it came to talking to your children about placing a sibling?
