I'm new to the group and just introducing myself. I'm Amanda I'm 21 years old and married to Shane who will be 38 this month. He has full and sole custody of his 5 year old son Bryson who is basically my son as well since his mother hasn't been involved in his life at all, his mom neglected him and had CPS called on her, they then gave my husband full and sole custody after all that. We have a daughter together as well who is going to be 2 and another baby on the way due in October. I love my life and love being a mommy. My stepson calls me mom and I have been raising him pretty much since he was 2 years old. Hope to get to know some other stepmom's in here.

Welcome

(edited)  Take some time to get a feel for our group.  It's not for everyone but many like us.  :) 

We're a group made up of all sorts of people in various situations.  I'm a BM, I'm not a SM, my boys (14 and 19) have had their SM in their life for more than 10 years now.  There are a few other BM onlys in the group.  There are SM onlys (no bio kids of their own).  There are former SMs.  There are those who are both BM and SM.  We come from all walks of life.  We don't tend to sugar coat things when we feel strongly about an issue.  And, there are some who are on here only to 'warn' new posters about us.   Like I said, we are a group made up for all sorts of people and all sorts of situations.  :)

Hi Amanda!

Welcome to the group. I am in a similar situation. Hubby and I have sole custody of his 4 year old son and the bio-mom hasn't seen or spoken to him in almost a year. Being a custodial stepmom is hard but this group is nice because it helps you connect with others in your situation!

Thanks. Yeah I know how that is with my stepson, he calls me mom all the time. I'm happy he looks to me as a mom it makes me feel good. His bio-mom was on drugs and she would go to the bar every night instead of watching her son. Well my husband has full custody of him now and he's in a much better place than he was. I'm happy I can talk to other mom's in my situation.

Yes, same here...pills and heroin. We knew we had to get custody when she was charged with neglect after he was found wondering around a parking lot alone! Poor baby. :( Also glad he is in a happy, healthy, stable environment now. I will add you as a friend! I just joined today too.

Awww that sucks that's how it was with my stepson's mom she was on all kinds of drugs then he finally was able to get custody of him and that's when he got full and sole custody. I've been raising him for 3 years, he calls me mom which makes me feel good knowing that I'm doing a better job than his real mom and I have guardianship of him too.
