Good quote for step moms?

I want to make a cute quote just for me an the kids scrapbooks. I have 2 kids and 1 step kid. Hes a huge part of our life. I want a quote that says something along the lines of being a step mother is harder than being a mother cause you have to love and nurture a child that isnt yours?? I dont know something cute something about accepting him as my own

  • That sounds a little mean almost. Is he going to read it at some point? I have a friend who was adopted and she used to tease her brothers and sister that, "Mom and Dad had to take you, they wanted me". How about something closer to that, so that if he reads it he'll feel like he belongs instead of a hard to love and deal with outcast?

  • there's a quote from a poem re adoption
    Never forget for a minute, you didn't grow under my heart but in it
    from a Todd Parr book "there are different ways to make a family. It just takes love."
    although I know it's hard, I would avoid reference to it being harder as if he's more of a burden than the other kids

  • Well I am not a step mom but I have a step father. I always tell him I am proud to call him my step-dad. I love him so much and care deeply about him. So when I made him a quilt I signed it "proud to call you my step-father".. Other than that you could call him your bonus kid? That seems rather nice.

  • Well, this one isn't really what you're looking for, but it's one of my favs. And here's the link to the page where I've found tons of quotes...

    I'd rather be a mother than anyone on earth
    Bringing up a child or two of unpretentious birth...
    I'd rather tuck a little child all safe and sound in bed
    than twine a chain of diamonds about my carefree head.
    I'd rather wash a smudgy face with round, bright, baby eyes
    Than paint the pageantry of fame or walk among the wise.
    -- Meredith Gray

  • How about: "I didn't give my stepson life, but I gave him my heart!"
