mommy of 3, how blessed you are to have 3 children and a loving husband!

I have no idea what the experts will say.

I would tell your dd who is 5 the facts and let her questions about it guide how much you tell, sounds like she already has some inklings, she won't understand it at the adult level but she will understand that she heard it first from you, that kind of trust will count for more in later years as she begins to sort out the rest of the story. If she is 5 and in school then she already knows about different parents and all, so it probably is time.
