I observe that the birth mother know that the natural father has legal rights. He can also be a personal reason that counts out.

My daughter's birth mother gave her up for adoption because she was not able to care for her child without any support. I know little to nothing of my daughter's birth father. I know one day she will be asking about her birth parents, I just don't know how to break her the news with what little information I have. I am trying to prepare myself for this day with sites like http://onlineceucredit.com/edu/social-work-ceus-iap to know how to give my daughter the information she wants without making her feel so unwanted. I just wish it weren't so hard!

It is hard sometimes to think of how you will handle that conversation and those questions. As her mother I'm sure you will do your best to tell her all that you know. Remember there are counselors at many agencies that will help your family navigate through these feelings also whether you ever decide to search for more answers or not. You may even take advantage of them now if you feel you need to prepare yourself for that talk. And kudos to you for being so proactive and preparing.
