7 years ago I was torn between the two loves of my life. My daughter resulted. Finding out for sure is not something my husband wants and I had to say goodbye to "W" when he didnt want her before she was even born...so here is my chart with my question...(attached)

It would be better to use her natal chart and certain Arabic Parts for a more definitive answer.
For significators, you are the Moon and Venus, your husband is (7th House) Saturn and the Sun. Your daughter is (5th House) Scorpio and Mars.
Our first testimony is that there is no aspect between Sun/Saturn and Mars. That would indicate he is not her father.
Our second testimony involves using Derived Houses. Treating the 5th House as the Ascendant, the Sun is Above Horizon making it a Day Chart. In a Day Chart, the 4th House and Sun are the father. The derived 4th House would be the Chart's 8th House ruled by Saturn. Sun/Saturn would also signify her real father. Any Planets within 5° of a House Cusp are considered to be in that House. Here we have the Chart's 4th House at 9° Libra and Saturn at 7° Libra and Sun at 8° Libra. Both Planets would are effectively in the 4th House. The Chart's 4th House is your daughter's 12th House of Sorrow/Separation/Loss. That shows that her father is absent from her life, which would indicate your husband is not the father.
If we continue using Derived Houses, the step-parent of the opposite sex is the the 4th House. That would mean that the Chart's 8th House also represents your husband and we see no aspects between Saturn/Sun and Venus.
I don't really see anything here that indicates your husband is the father.

One other thing. Normally, if Saturn is the natural significator of the father by Rulership (ie Saturn rules the house that signifies the father) and Saturn is Combust, we use Jupiter instead of Saturn.
Here, Venus and Jupiter are in trine by Sign, but not by aspect. Not that it matters, since both Venus and Jupiter are Infortunes, meaning they function as Malefics. Since both are Retrograde, Venus is the faster Planet and is still separating from Jupiter. Jupiter is both Cadent and Retrograde, so the trine is not a positive aspect here, and on top of that, there is no Reception between Venus and Jupiter, so it still gives a "no" answer.
