One family or two?

My stepson's BM and I were talking.

She said she had always taught him that he has two families and that's double the love.

I told her that DH and I always taught him he had two homes but one family. That we are are all HIS.


Which idea is more YOUR way of thinking?

One family, if everyone gets along good. Then he is lucky to have that. Not everyone gets along with the bm. So bless your heart for being amazing.

Seriously? Are you just looking for trouble?

It's not always warm and fuzzy. But we love the same child so I try to remember we are on the same team.

Neither. Dd has two different families, yes. We (DH and youngest dd and I) certainly don't consider my ex our family. But SHE (dd) considers all of us her family. So in other words, her family is made up of all of us AND my ex (her bio dad.) It's all relative.
