Our expert says:
Hello S, sounds like you are making genuine progress, and to an extent you didn't previously believe was possible. I hope much more good comes from this, and that you will soon be able to talk with your 11 year old half brother, too. You've done well, and it sounds as though your stepmother has wisdom and strength that will be useful, and that your dad is recognizing the error of his ways. It may well have been, as I suggested before, that he had lied in the hope that it would leave everyone happier, and without realizing that it could become hurtful.
