When I list more personal info in my sig, I include all my kids. But I am a f/t smom, so that does make a difference. If I was on mdc before they moved in, I dont know what I wouldve put. I'd like to think I wouldve, but who knows.

Thanks, I can use all the support I can get. I just keep telling myself one day, one day they will see. Probably like my own children, they won't really see until they have kids of their own. I know I didn't.

While I don't have step children, I am a step child. I have a maternal relationship with both my bio mom and my step mom. She's been in my life for a long time, became a full time step-mom when I was 11 (with a brother of 9 and a sister of 7).

She's very much a mom to me, and I introduce her as my Mom and she introduces me as her child. I'm in my thirties, and she's in her fifties now and I talk to her several times a week. We do holidays still. My children call her Grandma.

Just so you know, it is possible even with preteens to get there.

Oh, and my brother was a HELLION when he was a teenager. And he is probably the kid who is MOST attached to our "second mom."

I just wanted you to know, it is possible to have that relationship.
