Gen 3 20 And the man called his wife 's name Eve because she was the mother of all living. Now was is past tense meaning she was already a mother, before Gen 4 1.

I have gotten a man from the LORD.

This does not mean CAIN was the only child at the time. He could have already had SISTERS and brothers, He just was probably more favored (if any other males were born at that time) But definately He could have already had sisters before his birth.
