Hello Ladies!

I've been MIA lately, life just seems to get in the way sometimes.

A quick summary of what's been going on in my blended family life.

DSD's mom and I have called a truce. We have the idle chit chat when we do exchanges and it doesn't feel weird. It's for the benefit of DSD and we both know that. It's actually nice to not have that tension there.

DSS's situation is a little different, and I can't quite give out the details just yet, but let's just say it's for the best interest of DSS and when it's all said and done, I will share our news with you.

I hope that everyone is having a great summer. I try to creep in and see how you are all doing, but summer has been so nice here this year, that we just have to make the most of it!

Cheers!

Glad to see you! I've been wondering where you were!

Glad to hear that you & bio mom have called a truce. I hope it can continue.

I too have been wondering about you. Glad too see there is a truce, that's always better than being at odds. I can't wait to hear the new with DSS.

So the good news:

DSS's "monster" signed him over to us. After 8 years of fighting and WAYYYY too much money in legal bills, she moves 3.5 hours away and knew darn well that she couldn't take him with, so left him.

Didn't take anything of his with her. DF offered for her to have the long weekend, so she could see him, "No, it's too soon for me to come back, I won't be ready to see him"... so the visits start on Sept 16 and she will see him every other weekend... but we will see how long that really goes on for.

We gave her the same access for Christmas that she would have had before, which is she gets the first half, and we get the second half starting Christmas day for us. So it's about a week each, and her reply, "well I can't take him for that long, what the heck am I supposed to do with him for that long???"

It's bitter sweet. As a woman (especially a woman without any bio kids of her own) I just don't understand how a woman can just walk away from her kid? She is choosing the baby and her new husband over DSS and that breaks my heart. But we are so over the moon excited that he is going to be with us full time. I have seen such an improvement in his attitude and his behaviour that we know this is going to be good for him.

Thanks for all of your support ladies, I can't wait to see how this all pans out for all of us!

YAY For getting him full time. But boo for his mom handling things the way she is. I could never imagine walking way myself.

Yay! I'm so happy for you all.

And so sad for the little guy. I too don't understand how a mother can walk away from their child. I sadly have experience in a dad walking away from a child. But like you dss has you, my dd has dh and in the long run they will be better off.

That is great news! Yes, sad for the your DSS, but also good because it sounds like he'll do much better with you guys.
