Hi fellow "step" moms. My name is Heather. I have a 3 1/2 yr. old step daughter. It's pretty cool most of the time. Minus all the drama. I love her like she's my own and treat her as if. Although I have to be honest and say that sometimes it hurts to be with her. My husband and I lost our unborn child April 2012 because of Etopic pregnancy. And my fallopian tubes have since closed completely. So I will say again that I love my little girl like she's really mine. But I do have moments where I just want to run away because it all becomes a constant reminder. Well.. just want to say "hi" to all you moms out there. I think too often everyone acknowledges the biological and ignores us step parents.
