Discuss this further with him. He doesn't know her, but that isn't the child's fault. I don't know how practical or sensible it would be for her to be adopted by your husband if you two are separated. But the father of this child owes it to her to get to know her, to treat her lovingly and gently, and if he has no permament room for her in his life, to take his time to know her, and then gently expalin this to her, making it clear that this is his fault, and in no way whatever any fault of hers. As lady nina says, it is vital that this child is consistently reminded that she is lioveable and worthy of love. lady nina outlines the explanation a child needs, very well indeed.
