Do you ever get jealous?
I do every time I see "functional" step families. It also makes me sad.
I have a friend who had a mom and stepmom. Her mom passed away, as has her father, and the (former) stepmom has really stepped into the mom role with her. Today the stepmom posted on Facebook something like "I know your mom loved you very, very much and I do too."
Isn't it great SOME people can get to that point? I never will.
