Since I am new to this board, I would like to find out a little bit about you all and your families. What do you do? How long has your blended family been "one"? How many children do you all have? Ext...

I'm Samantha, DH has two children from a previous relationship Ethan is 8 and Kayley is 6. We've been together 5 years on Friday and married for 2 years in September, together we have 1 Daughter Audrey who is almost 2 1/2
We've been living together since 5 months into our relationship but the kids live with their mom. We get them in the summers and she recently moved within two hours of us and so we'll get them two weekends a month when DH is home from work and hopefully holidays, He works on an oil rig and is gone two weeks and home two weeks.

Brad is a fireman so he works 48hrs and is home 24hrs. We have Eli and Aubree whenever he is off. So on average 2-3 days a week. Brad is very involved with his kids so we try and see them more if their mom will let us.

I'm Emma (29), married to Lauriel (35). Between us we have four kids, I have two girls (Emersyn - 3 & Gabrielle - 6...), while she has a boy and & girl (Aidan - 5 & Eloise - 9...). We became a couple in January 2012 & did long distance for 12 months, January this year the girls and I moved to be with Lauriel & her kids, and we got married on April 13th. I am a full time student, working toward my Bachelor of Communication

My children don't get to see their fathers because they both live over 600km away, while we have Eloise & Aidan about 50% of the time (Lauriel & her ex husband have pretty much 50/50 shared care... but I think we end up with them for an extra night or two per fortnight)

I am Patty and my DH is Jonah. He is currently laid off and I am disabled, but I have just been given the OK to attempt to go back to work. I am a former paramedic and I am looking to start working as a 911 Dispatcher. We are both full time students right now, him in computers and I am in medical transcription.

We have 3 kids. Sean is my oldest and is 16. Robert will be 14 next week and he is Jonah's. Dani is the baby. She is mine and is 10. We have custody of all of the kids. Dani and Robert do visit their other parent, Dani more than Robert. I have full legal and physical custody of Sean with no input/visits etc from his sperm donor.

I'm Ashley, almost 30, married to Woody (almost 37) since Sept 2011. He has a little boy from his previous marriage named Reme, who will be 8 next month. We've been blending since June 2011 and while it was really rough at first we have it REALLY easy since both of Reme's families can get along to the point of having dinner together and enjoying it.

We are trying for a child together, have had 4 losses since last July. Hoping new medication will give us some success this summer. Reme's been on my case for a sibling for almost 2 years now.

I'm Shayna, a 23 year old mom to a 4 year old stepson, 3 year old bio son, and 18 month bio son. I was glad to find this board and other people who go through the same craziness. Some days, I'm at the point of pulling my hair out, and then I have to step back and laugh at the fact that this was "what I wanted." Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade these boys or my husband for anything in the world but when we got engaged and married 5 years ago and I knew that BM was pregnant with what "might be" my husband's child, I had NOOOOO idea what I was getting into.

We got married, a month later my husband left for military school and I was in an apartment living on my own for the first time in my life, 23 hours from "home," and the only person I knew in town was 7 months pregnant with his son and bat sh*t crazy. My husband was in school when she gave birth, so I went to the hospital and saw him. After paternity testing and him getting orders to Germany, we figured we'd give her a chance to be a decent mom because fighting a custody battle from Germany would be expensive and next to impossible.

Needless to say, less than six months later I was pregnant, and we started a 3 year long custody battle and went to court every summer, got summer visitation to bring him to Germany but didn't get to see him other than that or talk to him on the phone because she wasn't home or refused to answer the phone.

We moved back to the states a year ago (with 2 kids of our own now), and shortly after, we got full custody of him. So, with a 2 1/2 year old, a nursing 10 month old I was desperate to wean, SS came home with my husband, completely unexpectedly after a court date where she failed another drug test.

It's been an adjustment, a HUGE adjustment, and sometimes I literally want to beat my head against the wall. And then a few minutes later, without fail, one of these three amazing, stubborn, smart, loving, filled with energy boys does something that makes me wonder how I could have ever been frustrated with them.

Look forward to getting to know you ladies and hearing your experiences.
