Is it possible to really love your step children like your own? I think it is I have been raising my step daughter Peyton who is 10 since she was a two years old. Her mother has always been in and out of her life. Her mom is an alcoholic and does drugs. I also have a son of my own Jacob who is 7. I treat Peyton just like I do Jacob I love her just as much. Do you think its possible?
