All of my family and friends have been very accepting and the kids have adopted them as their family too, calling my parents "grandma" and "granddad". I think it has helped make their adjustment better.
My stepdaughters live in another state with their mom 4 hours away - my parents live in a completely different state 8 hours away. So the only time they've seen each other was at our wedding and my ds baptism.
Dh's mother has been fairly accepting of my kids but still holds them a bit separately (btw 1 kid is her bio grandchild & the other is her legally adopted grandchild). She'll say things like "the girl's cousin" when it is my kids cousin too.
The adults, that know her, in my family have been very accepting. It's the kids that aren't. However, my step daughter has a bad habit of being pushy and demanding, so do my brothers kids so they always end up in a fight.
My mom used to be more accepting but there have been things that has transpired between my daughter and step daughter that has my mother upset. My daughter is her first grandchild and baby. So if you her her baby you hurt her.
