I don’t know where to start… My BF and I began dating and I was under the impression he had 2 daughters and been divorced 3 years…. later down the road I was scrolling through his pics and noticed there was repetitive pics of a toddler. When I initially saw them I thought it was his younger daughter as a baby, not looking at the dates on the photos but then I came across a pic of all 3 girls. So I asked him and he said the child may or may not be his. About a month later he did a DNA test and she was. She was 18 months old at this time. By then we were already an official couple and talking about moving in together.

You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
