For those woman who had step-children before thier own bio children.

Do you love your BK's more then your SK's? I basically am my DSS's mom ...and DH and i are planning to TTC my first during his R&R if at all possible. Part of me thinks that having my own will help my maternal instincts and make me (in some respect) a better mommy to my DS. But i'm scared that i might love my own child more then my DS. I almost dont see how that's possible bc i love him so much already ...but does having your own change anything?

  • I'm not a stepparent, but I'm an adoptive parent who has been considering getting pregnant within the next year. I love my children for who they are, not where they came from. Parents love each child differently. My stepfather was a wonderful father even after he and my mom had children. Good luck!
