wow and I thought my situation was crazy I am thankful that I dont have the situation most of you have, I am thankful that I love my husbands kids and cherish ever second with the kids. everytime my SD is goofy or being a crazy 5 year old I always ask her "what am I goin to do with you?" she reply "LOVE ME!" and I say "ALWAYS AND FOREVER!" AHHHH i am so thankful for the joy on my SS face when he gets off the bus and runs and leaps in my arms everyday and first and foremost through everything I have been through with BM I am thankful that she truly does love her kids and is not one that's on drugs or jumping for guy to guy. I have relized my situation compared to alot of story on here is NOT that bad AT ALL!
