My name is Emma, I have 4 children ranging from 10 months to almost 7. Their father and I had an awful on and off relationship. He doesn't pay any child support, or help with our joint personal loan etc. He was/is abusive.

My new partner is a wonderful man who has two children, 14 and 9. His ex is still fairly involved with the kids, but he has them in his care.

So I just thought I'd pop my head in here, I know as time goes by and issues arise it will be good to be able to talk to those who understand both sides of the fence (BM and Step Mum). The kids get along, they're all happy with us being together. We live in separate homes and have no plans for changing this arrangement anytime soon but I know when the times comes for that, things may get difficult. So, hi!

Also a newbie! I'm Stephanie and have a 13 yo son from my 1st marriage, a 2 yo daughter and a daughter on the way with my husband now. My husband has a 9 yo daughter from a previous relationship.

My son lives with us full-time and his dad lives out of state. We all have a great relationship and life is good with moms, dads, stepdads, stepmoms.

My stepdaughter lives with us one week on/one week off. BM is obviously local. Things have been good between all of us for about a year. The previous 5 were hell on earth.

Despite having working relationships there are still challenges.

Glad to find y'all!

Thanks ladies both BM and my ex live about 3 and 5 hours away, so unfortunately SK don't get to see BM as much as I'm sure they'd like. Amy ex, he just doesn't bother. They call him once a week and that's about it.
