I am not a mother of children (tried to raise a couple of husbands that refused to grow up) I have pets, more than I need  but will not turn away any kind that is set to be put to death because owners don't want them, I live a ways in the woods and have given homes to those who stop by to get a bite to eat or a warm place to sleep...does that make me a Step-mother?  I know what your site is for so if I don't qualify to be a member I understand...Judy

 When you say step mom are you referring to your husband children or people/animals that are in need of a home?? If your Hub has children then yes you are a step mom..

 well, as far as your pets go, i would consider them your fur babies, hence you are their mother.  i consider my pets my babies.  it is not the same as my child, but they are still my babies and a part of my family.  is that what you are asking?

Animals are cool, and they need someone that loves them and helps them out its good what you do.. however animals are a bit different the raising a child / children.. although it doesn't make you bad or anything if you don't have kids.. on this site there's talk about kids/grands but its not the main focus.. that's what I like about it a bit if a break about hearing about how bad the kids are being and so on... Here we talk more about other life topics take sometime to talk about ourselves and share those types if things...

Someone else did and that MOM came out without asking anything ...just simple giving as we do....to make sure you are ok to continue your journey....If mother's wore tiara's I'd give you a pretty one!!!! Welcome to our family

Welcome! I don't have biological kids either. My husbands children were grown when we married. I have 3 nieces that I feel are my own. And I have my furbabies. All that to say there are all kinds of mothers.

 While being  a mom serves as a springboard for bringing some women together, I don't think it ends up being the glue that holds people together as much as conversation and cameraderie of simply being a woman does.  Motherhood is certainly a larger portion of my identity right now, as my kids are growing, but it's not my whole identity. A big welcome from here!welcome

Welcome to The Group--Seems to me that you care for and nuture furbabies, so that would make you a Mom!
