Stepfamilies
Just my thought on Stepfamilies .

My hubby is Stepfather to my three( young adults) we have been married forn 8 years so they were at the terrible early teens when we met .

My ex husbands daughter gets on better with me than her own father .. she is still my daughter despite me having being divorced from her father 10 years ago.

I love my Stepmother dearly and she has become a lovely step granny to my three and my inherited daughter ..

We are all so close we love each other "step " doesnt come into into it .. its about loving and respecting people for who they are .. blood ties IMO have got nothing to do with anything really ..

My step daughter is also pregies with her first child ...

whats confusing me is whats the relationship ??? nothing .... but she is my daughters half sister therefor she is my daughter too ..

Crazy isnt it ....

Isn't a relationship based in actual shared living experiences always more than a "relationship" based purely on genes and chemicals ? And aren't Steps. methods for joining together diferent levels and structures ? Gosh, some of the folks here are at times a sort of Step-Shrink !
