Hi... I'm a bonus mom of 3... a 7 year old girl, a 4 year old boy, and a 2 year old boy. They live with my husband and I for 10 months out of the year... I found out today that I'm pregnant and I couldn't be more excited!! I just hope that this baby makes a seamless transition into our family.

I have a great relationship with my bonus kids... I am their mom.... their bio mom gave birth to them, but she's very rarely around... I raise them... they call me mom... they call her by her given name.

Congrats on your new addition!

I'm sure the transition will be fine, but a good way to make sure that it is, I would make sure they are included in planning for the new baby. When I was pregnant with Olivia, Meyson went to the majority of my appointments with me, not into the exam room, but he was there for the ultrasounds. I would also let him help me set up things for the baby, help pick out certain things for the baby (I would pick the items we needed, but I would let him choose the color or something), and he was with me at my baby shower. It's all pretty much the same things you would do to prepare any child for a new addition, making sure they know that they're still loved and that they're included.

Good luck with your pregnancy & KUP.
