  • I was almost part of a blended family 4yrs ago, and for 2 years was very active in raising my ex's daughter. The BM and I had a VERY good relationship, especially when it came to the children. I am now part of another blended family, and again am very active in my SD's life even though we dont see her as often as we would like. I do not have a close relationship with the mother (she has been having issues and has been away most of the time) but I do have a sturdy relationship with her aunt and grandmother, who have her in custody ATM. It is hard being part of a blended family, especially if Mom and Dad have different rules at their houses. I throughly enjoyed it. Being with my ex and his daughter helped me out alot with figuring this parenting thing (like a test drive) and still be able to completely back off if needed/wanted. I believe it helped greatly with my son. I was a little less freaked out I think.
