Our expert says:
There's really no way to KNOW such things, other than by asking the child ; more easily within a conversation rather than as a single fraught question. Maybe the child feels the need to assure you of her love for you, so you will remain caring for her, whereas she understand ( in whatever way, only she can tell you ) that she has currently lost biomom, so doesn't feel such need to confirm her love for biomom ? Maybe for some reason she actually doesn't love biomom as much, or in the same way, and so doesn't say it ?
As for the concern about being caught in the middle, similarly, include it within chat, that some kids feel that way in a situation like this, and its understandable and not a problem and how does she feel ?
