Yes that is something I did that I failed to mention in my other answer. I was the one who picked up my stepdaughter AND took her home.I used this time to get to know her, to listen to her problems, to talk to her , took her shopping and out to dinner with me. I spent the time with her that her mom didn't have for her. I helped raise her from the time she was 11 until she married at age 19. While all this was happening, her brother would drive out in his mom's car, visit his dad and try to talk dad into going back with his mom(behind my back, of course.)Even when I found out about this, I didn't freak out on him, just kept on being sweet and nice to him waiting on him, serving him food and drink, discussing his career choices with him, his girlfriend, etc.He finally decided that he loves me, and that his dad made the right choice. Was it easy?? NO WAY!! But it all came out just fine in the end--hang in there!!
