Try reading Stepmonster. It helps explain and validate some of your feelings. Everyone has mixed feelings especially with unique strain of a stepfamily. Responsibility without authority defines the step parent life. Read this book and keep a journal of your feelings. Talk with DH about what you are feeling. See if he will read this book too. Make sure what you are feeling is not coming from BM and you are projecting it onto your step child. It's not fair to the child to make him or her responsible for the anger or resentment you feel toward BM. Good luck!!!
