Yeah it's all gang up on Lynn thread. Please! You're making sweeping generalizing statements. It like you just can't get it through your head that even if BM is alive and in the child's life that situations still can't be different. When you can sit back and acknowledge that, then I'll listen. Till then cry me a darn river over ganging up on you. Choose your words more carefully and then maybe it wouldn't happen. Don't be insulting to a group of people then play the "victim"card.

^Again, re read my post. You are ASSuming again. Kind of ridiculous, if you ask me. No one's playing a "victim" that's your words, not mine.

We did read what you wrote because many of us quoted you in our responses. Responding to your statements is not "attacking".

Sorry the only Donkey BEHIND is you in this case, not me. Maybe you need to reread and stop back tracking by saying I was being "sarcastic." Here's a clue sarcasm can be insulting.

I also addressed the stepparents that are more of parents than their own parents in previous posts. I addressed adopting/step-parent adopting and compared two people I know (including my actual sister who is a mom because she adopted her stepchild).

I don't have a problem with those situations. What I was having an issue with this stuff was when the mother is alive/well/actually being a parent, which I wish people read EVERYTHING so they would see these things instead of attacking me and assuming I mean something else. Oh well.
If the bolded isn't playing victim, then we're all a bunch of morons. And I know that is not the case.

I don't have step children but I wouldn't do it without the consent of the childs mom and dad. I think doing it without permission is disrespectful. I think its perfectly fine so long as the parents are ok with it, though.

I have a lot of stepkids. I call them my stepkids. My adopted kids are my kids legally, so I call them my kids.

My DH is the step-dad in this situation (he has no bio kids, so I'm not a stepmom). He refers to the kids as "our kids", even though their bio dad is in the picture. I have had residential custody since my divorce from my ex in 2003. My ex lives 2 1/2 hours away, so there's no first right of refusal in our decree...would never work. My ex loves the kids, spends every other weekend with them, plus 6 weeks in the summer and rotates holidays with us, and we work together for as much extra time as he can take. My DH and I have been married nearly 4 years and he is there daily for the kids, doing everything a Dad does. Should he have to refer to them, when introducing them to people as "my step-kids"? I don't think so, neither does he. He always says "These are my kids and this is my wife." My ex likes my DH-they get along, and he has no problem with DH calling them his kids. He knows how much my DH does for them and has thanked him. My DD (who is 12) calls my DH "SuperDad". My DS always says "this is my other Dad J" when he introduces him to someone.
