Hi!  I found you guys online b/c I am at my wit's end with my step-daughter's mother.  I have been with her daughter for over 4 years & she still refuses to 'meet' me.  It, amongst other things, has caused so much stress & dysfunction that it is a factor in why my husband & I have been amicably separated for 6 months now.  We go to counseling, pray, & are working positively through everything else.  She (the ex) now has a new boyfriend & wants my husband to meet him, and he is finally standing by me for her to meet me first, which I greatly appreciate.  Anyway, the mom's refusing still & I can't keep putting Paxton in the middle so....I've said that my time with her has to be limited now, since this whole dynamic has been causing her to act out & creating some major emotional & psychological issues.  My husband suggested that we meet (just she & I first) at a neutral counselor's office and she is still refusing, but saying that my husband has to meet her boyfriend & I just have to 'deal' with it, knowing that Paxton suffers the most, & it's breaking my heart.  And this is just ONE of the many issues with her.  Any experience with this or suggestions?

Welcome DeAnna!  welcome

Quoting jaxoncasemom:

Hello! I'm DeAnna. My (soon to be stepdaughter) will be 3 the 18th. I've been a part of her life since she was born but I started dating her father the month she turned 1. I'm her "Mommy D" as she calls me. I love her like my own. Me and Her father do have a son of our own named Jaxon! He is the light of my life. I love both my kids but being a stepparent so young can be frustrating at times(not because of her, she's amazing! But because of her mom)

Hi!  We're glad you found us too.  :)

You're right, this situation probably is affecting Paxton quite a bit, poor girl.  hugs

Hello my name is Andrea

I am 28 years old and live in wisconsin

I have 2 bio children Evan 5 and Elizabeth 10

I also have 2 future step daughter  Raegan 3 and Madalyn 5

I've been with my boyfriend Chayce since June 2011

I don't have any step mom/bio mom drama because currently Chayce's ex wife is in jail and he has a restraning order against her.

His girls call me mom all the time, which doesnt bug me because I consider them my own

Things are challenging at times, hopefully they get better.

Hello I have been a step-mom for about 6 plus years to 2 wonderful girls. We then have 3 children together also. The ages range from 10 years old to 3 months old. I never did this sort of thing before but I would love to be able to talk to other step-moms about being a stepparent.  My situation is a very difficult one pertaining to my stepchildren. We are currently going through more custody issues with my husbands ex-wife. Yes...that's right after 6 years of being together we still have issues with the ex! Could use some advice and inspiration because I think I am at my end of my rope with this situation.

Hi, I'm Emily! I'm 21 and from GA! I have two stepkids, SS is 8 and with us during the week and EOW, and SS is 13 but he's with BM during the week and here EOW. DH and I have two boys together, they're 3 and 1. We have been together for 4 years and married for 3 (4 in June).
I'm glad to have found a group with women who have been in similar situations because I have NO friends who are stepparents. It always helps to have someone who can relate to you. Nice to meet you guys!
