I just joined earlier today and was told I would fit in well in this section..
I am married to my high school sweetheart, whom I have known since 1998. However, we went out seperate ways but always kept in touch as friends. He has two children from previous marriage (4 year old boy & 9 year old girl). I have a 8 year old girl from a previous relationship. However, the biological mother & father are not really an active roll but that is a whole another story. We are expecting a baby in Sept. However, I love and adore the kids as if they was my own, although both of us being a step parent has it's challenge. Especially with the lack of parenting of the other "parents". Anyways, that is my story.. I hope to learn and take in advice from others. As this is a challenge for us all but well worth it.. More to come..
Have a great day..
Any questions or suggestions, feel free to ask away!
Welcome to the board! I have a similar situation, but when I met Neely my own kids were 15 and 12, so it was harder for him to take an active "daddy" roll. They are buds, but they don't have a typical parent-child relationship. With his boys, they've been living with us for about 2 years now and prior to that we had them every other weekend, sometimes every weekend and they were 3 and 5 when I met them, so it's easier for me to take an active parental roll.
Anyway, we also have one son together and we're expecting our second son in August. Looking forward to getting to know you!
