I read so many post about stepmothers saying they love their stepchild as their own, HONESTLY I dont believe that what so ever!!. I'm a step mom and I do for my stepdaughter just how I do for my son. I didnt carry her but I watched and help teached her to hold her bottle, walk, heard her 1st words all that but I do not love her like she was my own daughter I would be lying if I said that. No person can compare the love you have for a child you carried and birthed.
I do love my stepdaughter and would do anything for her and protect her by all means but I do not love her as if she was my own daughter.
This post is taken just how I thought. Not loving your child as your own bio child doesnt make you a bad person at all or a crook. Your child that you carried, saw developing in your tummy, dealing with back pains, kicking you as they grew inside your womb, listening to the 1st heart beats, picking names that fits your baby all that!!....Come ne be truthful to your self the love that you hold for you child is different for the love you have for a stepchild, nieces and newphews its a different type of love.
I'm not speaking on stepparents/adoptive parents with no birth kids because you have not experienced giving life just yet.
Also because I said I do not love my stepdaughter as if she is my own that doesnt mean I dont care for her, provide for her, tell her I love her etc. Its just a different love I have for my son.
