A member of the community asks:
“My fiancé’s recent and only baby momma wants to take our baby to her children’s party and or be around them more often. She has two by him. Since our baby is their half-brother. Is it wrong of me to not want [my] baby in their lives, or should I expose him to them as his other half-siblings?”

A lot of other moms in similar situations told this mom that it’s important for her child to get to know his siblings and for him to be a part of their life. One commenter wrote, “I have 5 daughters with 4 different dads. You can bet your hiney all my girls all know each other and refer to each other as sisters, whether they have different dads makes zero difference. Your situation is no different, just that you only have one child, but your man has 3.”
Another mom added, “If she hasn’t given you a reason not to trust her I’d give her the chance to include your baby. I’m not saying hand it off and come back but show up together as a family and once they’re older explain they’re half-siblings.”
And one woman says siblings are siblings, regardless if they only share one parent. “They are siblings, not half-siblings. I have 2 boys with my ex and a 4-month-old with my new partner…t hey are all brothers. Unless there is a valid reason why they shouldn’t be around them, I can’t see why. Unfortunately, it’s not about us in these cases it’s about the children and they should know their sibling.”
