I have a 12 yr old stepdaughter. I have been with her dad since she was 3 and we have been married since she was 5. She calls me Susie (my name is Susan) and sometimes she calls me mom. I have never insisted that she call me anything else. I have always gone with what makes her comfortable. She already has a mom and I am not trying to replace her.

When I introduce her to people I do usually tell people she is my stepdaughter. I do that mainly because otherwise people look confused. She is tall, skinny, and blond. I am average height, very dark hair, and not so skinny. I also would have been only 14 when I had her.

She is old enough that we have discussed how to go about these things and the way we do it is fine with her. I love her like my own though and would do anything for her.
