Hello! I am new to this site. Finally made an account after quite a bit of lurking. I have been trying to find a place where I can relate to people with step parenting for quite a few years now. I have been a step parent for 4 years, SS was in Kindy and SD a toddler when I first arrived into their lives as SM figure. The BM I deal with is very high conflict. It’s because of her my life has not been easy with falling in love with DH.
For the past 5 years I have been dealing with my blended family issues..
My BF EX and their 2 kids aged 4 & 8 at the time
my Ex and our children aged 3 & 7 at the time
Ive stood by his side through all the Bullshit Court dates ( and there was alot) for my BF to atleast have fortnightly visits with his kids..
The lies and bullshit she would put into court documents just to deface the father of her children. the Stories she would tell my S kids about there father. the crocodile tears his ex put on and then smurked when she got her way in court.
