  • NO! I love my SS just as much as my Bio-kids, and just as much as the one we are going to adopt. My CHILDREN are my CHILDREN. No ifs, ands, buts, steps-, bio- or adopted- about it!

  • NO,& AS A PAST STEPCHILD I USED TO WISH MY STEP PARENT WOULD TREAT ME BETTER OR EVEN CARE THAT I WAS THERE.

  • No, I think that is wonderful. I'm a step-child 2 times over, and my experience with step-mothers has not been a good one. Your step-kids are very lucky! Kudos to you.

  • Your feelings can't be wrong, it is simply how you feel! And you should never apologize for loving someone in your life.

  • No way. I would love to think that my stepmom loves me as much as her own kids! Plus not to toot my own horn, but I am less trouble, more supportive, and more appreciative of everything she does.
