I am a divorced mom of two graduating teenagers. I recently became engaged to a man who has two children ten years younger than mine. For the first time in my life, I feel like I am not alone! He shares thoughts, ideas, and chores related to raising children and teens and the household! My greatest fear is that one day I will find myself doing it all, and that I had been taken advantage of. This comes from experiencing a difficult marriage of over twenty years.
I work full time as an Ultrasound technologist. I am in need of learning sign language to help communicate with Brian's son. I am also in need of superhuman strength to deal with two teenagers and two "step-children"!
It is a huge challenge to let my children grow up and leave home without falling apart! Even though a part of me is rejoiceing at the fact they are almost grown, a part of me is sad that I didn't get to do as much as I would have liked to do for them.
