I am a stepmom to a nearly 15-year-old young man.  I grew up in Iowa, and now I live in Missouri.  My significant other and I met at home.  He was my neighbor.  He invited me over for a steak dinner, and I thought "Wow! This guy really likes me!  He is cooking me steak."  Six years later we are still together.

When I have time to myself, I like to go for walks, do some reading, watch romantic comedies, and exercise.  

Today has been a pretty good day.  I am always a little anxious when my stepson is here not knowing what drama his BM will create.

I guess ill start with the fact that i am the mother to a beautiful 16 month old baby girl. I live in Kentucky, its where i was raised. 

I currently have a full time job.  My fiance and i have been together for 2 1/2 years now, together we raise our daughter and help raise his 3 other girls every weekend. Its a little stressfull at times but you have to love kids. I dont really have alot of free time, but what little bit i do get i try to spend with my daughter.  Now that i am a parent i think more about what she needs than myself.

Hello Everyone! I have two boys ages 6 and 21 months. My husband and I were born and raised in Jamaica, and we are now living in Swedesboro, New Jersey since 2009. We love it here! I met him in a taxi in 2000 as we were heading to our closest town from our separate community to do Saturday chores, like depositing checks, withdrawing money, receiving money through money gram, grocery shopping, etc.
I like to read, browse the net, go shopping, and encourage people to live a fulfilling life.
Whatever you're going through right now, be encouraged and don't give up on life. God created you for a purpose and you are important to Him.

Welcome to CafeMom! I had the same discovery, that being a mom meant the child had priority. :)
