Caught between my adopted stepsons biological mother and adopted mother. Biological mother wrongfully(in my eyes) lost her son to adopted mother. I care for this little boy who is now 7 , full-time in another state. Bio-mom lost him...and adopted mom abandoned him. I feel that it is in this childs best interest to know his bio-mom as "MOM" and not adopted mom who left him behind. It is really sad for this child because he has mandatory visitation with adopted mom who doesn't really want him and she is 100% against him spending any time with his bio-mom who does want him. Bio mom is a very nice trustworthy person, just got mixed up with drugs when she was young. I just don't know what to do for this child in this situation...he's got to be so confused. Help!

Adopted mom is his legal mom so you have to respect her rights as much as possible, maybe your husband can help bio mom establish legal visitation rights given the situation, or he can go to court to get full custody of his son. He is the boys father so he has just as much say as his mother as to the bio moms role in his life, more so if he is raising him and giving him a stable upbringing. Good luck, I'm so glad this child has you in his life, someone who is willing to put his needs above their own.
