So I have 4 biological children and a step-daughter who has been in my life for 6 years now, since she was 3. I want to get a Mother's ring with my kids' birthstones in it but I don't want to put hers in it. I know, I know, I will probably get alot of negative feedback because of that but to be honest, she has never really respected nor treated me like a parental figure and I am certain she won't start. She pretty much blatently is not nice to me no matter how hard I try. Her Mother is her world, which is fine, I get it. I don't nor never wanted to replace her Mother and I don't want to add her birthstone into my ring, but I feel like my husband and his family will be majorly offended by this. I don't know what to do!
Answer to a question: She does NOT call me Mom, like I said she doesn't really give me the time of day, ignores what I tell her, lies about stuff to her Dad, it's really a difficult situation. If I felt closer to her I would consider it, but she obviously doesn't like me and doesn't treat me like a parental figure at all! DH would TELL me he's fine with it then resent me in silence I know he would,

She is not your daughter. It is not offensive to not include her.
