"It's not everyday that I think about telling my daughter about my other daughter, but it feels like every day — every minute, actually — and I just can't do it. I can't wrap my head, even though my heart is there, around telling my eight year-old that she has a living, breathing 14 year-old sister. A half sister. A surrendered sister. A sister I gave birth to and then gave away because I was 15." Figruing out when is the right time to tell the truth as a mother and writer.
