Looking for a community
Hey step folks! I'm brand new here, and looking to talk with other step-parents about the kinds of things only non-bio parents feel and understand. I decided to google support groups, and found this website.
I've had a lot going on in my life recently revolving around my step-parenting situation. I don't really have anyone around me who can properly empathize with the way I'm feeling. I love my SO, but I don't think he can grasp fully what it's like to love two young kids so much, and have people denying your role in their life. No matter what, he'll always be their father. Most of the bad feelings I face right now revolve around family; my SO's mother's side, his father's side, and how they treat me versus his EX. How it complicated the boys' lives, and how it frustrates me that adults won't put the children first.
