It is also important 'what' she told her daughter about her dad through all these years.
I'm sure the daughter asked about her dad, and i'm also sure the mom did not tell the truth.
The daughter now is in a terrible emotional tight rope, as she was probably very happy all these
years, (i'm assuming), but now when she hears what actually happened 18 years ago, she will see her
mom in a different light, and her dad in a new light, this is very sad for her, tears up her life as
it has been, and puts her right in the middle 'emotionally', as I'm sure she loves her mom, and now she
must figure out how to know her dad, and what to feel about her mom, because her mom would have lied to
her about her dad, and that will be very dissapointing to her.
Her mom is the cause of all of this, what goes round comes round, and it is her
turn to feel that misery, as i'm sure the dad suffered over the years wondering
about his daughter.
