I love my stepson, but not in the motherly way. He gets on my nerves most of the time and he really upsets me because of how he treats my husband. He's 9 and probably the rudest, most arrogant child I have ever met. Anyways, we are adopting a child due to the fact that I cannot conceive. My mother told me about a week ago that if I couldn't love my stepson like he was my own, then I wouldn't love an adopted child either. I disagreed. My stepson has a mom to go home to and who tries on a constant basis to destroy us as a family and our adopted child won't. But do you think thats true? Like I said, I do love my stepson. And I want the absolute best for him, I just don't LOVE him like he's mine. Do other stepmoms love their stepkids just as much as their own? I feel like a failure here because I really am trying.Answer Question
