  • They are my children and I am their mom, but I have had them since they were young and there is no involvement from their bio-mom. I tried so hard to keep her in their lives but she choose to walk away and not look back. I am very thankful that I got the chance to raise and watch these amazing kids grow.

  • I love my boys. I treat them just like I treat my DD. They are both 9 years old(twins) and amazing young men and I feel it is a privalage to be in their lives. I knew when I decided to be with their dad I would be a mom(this was years before I had my DD)

  • Sometimes strained, mostly due to their nasty bio-mom and the things she says to them about my husband and myself. Over the years (almost 7), we have become closer, but their mother's nastiness has really prevented a solid relationship. I consider myself a "bonus loving adult" in their lives, not a parent.

  • I love them and they love me.

  • We have a great relationship. He is a part of my family, and fits right in whenever he comes over.
