I'm Ro.

I have 3 kids. and I'm not with their dads.

I am dating and in a committed relationship with someone new and we are talking about marriage (in the future not rushing anything) so more and more I'm dealing with helping him find his place in our family, and how do I/he/we handle things.... so I'm not a step mom but we have a blended family (he doesn't have kids of his own) and looking forward to a secodn marriage for me at some point...

So... do I fit in here??

Of course you do. Not all of us are step moms, some are just blended. We have a mix of step moms only, bio and step moms, and just bio moms with a new partner. Welcome to the group.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

You definitely fit in! We all have different flavors! I'm in what I call a not so blended family My dh's has 2 dds from his previous marriage but..... they live 4 hours away with their bio mom (her choice) and the oldest (17) opted out of our family 5 years ago. I have no relationship with her & she barely has on with dh although he tries hard. We see the youngest (13) 3 times per year. I adore her. She's a great kid. But I'm really her dad's wife & her siblings mother. I call her my stepdaughter in reference but we really don't have that kind of relationship. I do not refer to dh's oldest as my stepdaughter. We don't have any relationship. If I talk about her, I call her dh's daughter.

I have a dd (10) from a previous marriage but 3 1/2 years ago my ex gave up his parental rights & my dh adopted her. Dh & I have a son (6) together.
