Hi my name is Michelle. I have a 2yo son and 7 and 8 yo sds from my husbands previous relationship. I've been in their lives for the past 4/5years and love them as if my own. The road has had many bumps but I know that it's all worth it :) and I can take all the bumps up the road too!!

It's not an easy decision or thought by any means but I don't know how much longer I can handle the constant attention given to one child and not the other. Of course when I say a word, we are in an instant fight. I am 33 years old and I love being married, but at the same time doesn't everyone deserve to be happy? The 12 year old does bad in school, lies, cheats, has a bad attitude and that is the atmospher of the home. My son does not deserve that...I am a happy, annoyingly optimistic person and this life is very hard. I think some days it would be easier to leave. Obviously, I am very  confused at the moment and thought maybe other step moms felt the same way? It used to be fun to be the step mom but the past few years have been terrible. So any advice is greatly appreciated!

Hello All. My name is Jessica and I am glad I found this group. DF/DH (not legally married but might as well be) have been together for almost 2 1/2 yrs but have known each other since high school. I have 2 girls from a prior marriage and he has 1 son. We are expecting our own together in April of 2013.  All 3 kids live with us full time. We have little issue with SS BM other than she would rather party than spend time with any of her kids. I am currently in a custody battle with my XH (aka DNA Donor) but not to worried about that. He and his new wife just keep digging their hole deeper and proving to the court that they are not appropriate for my girls to be alone with. SS is 10 and has started puberty so his attitude at times is a challenge. Also my oldest DD has a hard time getting close to DF. She hardly talks to him, even when he asks her a direct question. I know a big part of it is because of the way her DNA donor treated her when he choose to be in her life. She will start to open up to him one day but then shut herself off for weeks after. We do go to a counselor and that helps some but only sporadically.  I have been the only consistent adult in her day to day life until I allowed DF to meet the girls. Youngest DD doesn't even consider DNA Donor her father. DF has been Daddy to her since she was 18 months old.

Hi y'all. My name is Cassie, I'm 25, and my husband and I have full-custody of his seven year old daughter -- which is a relatively recent event for us. It's been a tough transition for the two of us, but we're trying to squeeze the Hell out of the lemons we've been given and make some damn good lemonade out of it!

Since I've move cross-country to settle in as a married family, I have been left with very little by way of friends or family. And by very little, I actually mean none within earshot that can offer a hug or true comfort when I'm struggling with it all.

I look foward to reading all y'alls stories and opinions.
