I posted here a LONG time ago... I'm really struggling so thought this would be a good time to come back

only question is... do I really have to have all those posts to post in the private forum? I dont know if I'm comfortable posting about my issues in the public... I'm afraid of who would be reading... I have a ton of posts in my PR... can a host get back to me on this? thanks!!

Welcome back. It must have been a while, I don't recall your user name, did you change it? what is your name?

Any ways, welcome back! I'm Chantelle, one of the co-hosts here & have been for over 2 years now on Blended Families. I am both a bio & step-mother to four boys. I see it on all levels.

As far as the private forum goes, and it states "You must be an active member of the Blended Families board for 60 days and have at least 100 posts on Blended Families board. Please PM the hosts for the password." So even if you had a 100 posts on BF's from before hand, it's not w/ in the past 60 days (2 mos.), so stick around, get to know us & you as well & that way we can all help out. If there is something you want to discuss in greater detail & feel uncomfy about discussing it on the public forum (which I totally understand), you can PM me & I'd be happy to talk to you.

Again, welcome back & jump right in & post!

Hi! I agree with Chantelle!

Sounds like we have some similarities in our situations so feel free to pm me until you get enough time/posts in.

BTW I'm Kris the other co-host. I'm married to Bryan. I have a dd (8) from my previous marriage who Dh adopted and we have a son(4) together. My Dh has 2 dds from his previous marriage - 11 & 15. They live 4 hours from us with their bio mom. Right now we are the farthest thing possible from a blended family but we do our best.

I had that same issue too, but just commenting on other people's things, and putting your issues in "simple" terms, will help too. The ladies here are WONDERFUL, and truthfully I don't know what I would do without them.

I don't give out my name or anything, because I have 2 crazy "monsters" that I have to deal with. My DF and I have been together for 2.5 years now, and he has a DS from one "monster" and a DD from another "monster" Both of these women are CRAZY and think that I am the devil incarnate! But my step kids I will take a bullet for, they may not be mine biologically, but in my heart they are. And they know that too.

Keep your chin up and stick around, trust me, in the end it's all worth it to see that child's smile, knowing that they KNOW you have done everything you can for them.


Thank you
*Kiliki* for my beautiful siggie!

I realized who you are now. Didn't you post back in 09 around the beginning? was it your DSD that is a vegan? Just making sure that I'm thinking of the same person. What's your name again?
