He has also asked who'd get him if DH and I died (he was assuming I'd still have him if dh died) and said he'd choose my parents over his mom's parents. So, even if I see the ties could possilby not be forever, he doesn't really.
Dss and I haven't gotten to this level yet with our relationship. I aspire to though!

It really sounds wonderful Jennifer, and I really hope dss and I can develop this. Of course, I realize it will take time, but dangit! lol Patience is hard...

I have to say I agree with you! My daughters are 8 now and it has been 5 years since their bio dad last saw them. He owes us almost 8 grand in child support. I am so mad at him I live in fear that he will come back into our lives, he loves to breeze in and get them calling him dad and then leave. My poor husband didn't know what to do last time that happened he was so hurt that the kids were told he wasn't the real dad. Right now aside from the fear of coming back we deal with the lack of support. We have Family Enforcement taking action but the ex just brushs them off and carries on as if he has no children at all. Makes me crazy!
