My stepkids are a blessing!
I stumbled onto this site looking for advice on different topics pertaining to stepfamilies since I am a relatively new stepmom. But I have to say, I see way too many posts about how people hate their stepkids. I think that's horrible. I love my stepkids so much. I am so blessed to have them in my life. Are there things that happen that I don't like? Of course! But even if every day was a struggle, I could never hate them. I wonder if they were your own kids if there would still be all of these "hate" posts. I doubt it. I just think although we may not be "the" mother, we should still act like one and show our stepkids the love that we would show our own kids.
