Gosh and I can't imagine having a step child and not loving her/him as my own. I live with my boyfriend for almost 6 years now and absolutely love him. He has a daughter who is 11 and lives in England. She comes to visit us twice a year for a month at a time. We speak on the phone 1 - 2 a week. Can I tell you that from day one I absolutely love this girl as my own, although my boyfriend and I are not married we live as such. Therefore she is a part of him and in order for me to love him I have to love all parts of him, which of course includes this little one. I can't tell you as a Hispanic mommy myself, I find it absolutely cute when she calls me mummy. lol The English way of saying mommy.

I was a child once and without either parent, so I do know what it is like to be without one but two parents. So I do my best to make sure that I love and take of any that have entered my life. Thanks so much for my BR.

I completely agree Gothicana. There is no reasoning behind why a "step-parent" cannot love their "step-children" like they are their own. I am a first hand reciever of this. My "step-dad" who is my DAD has been there since I was 1 years old. I have never met my "real father" whom I simply call a sperm donor. I don't consider my dad a step dad because he has always been there for me. I am now 23 years old and he is still there for me. And he loves his grandchildren and doesn't treat them any differently then I would expect. He loves his family. Being a step-parent does not mean that one is unable to love anothers children like they were your own.

That is so much, there are a few people like that and you did a good job with that goth,. Any step parents can sure love their step children as they love their spouses they should love the children as well, and i don't understand why there are some step parents who are so cruel with their step children. Perhaps they are not lovable inside.

Hi, Gothicana, that is a very inspiring thing to say. I too believe Yes You Can Love Your StepKids Like Your Own Kids. Love come from the heart and if your heart is in it it can be done no doubt about it. Love can be define in many different ways but the love of a child is a precious thing. Keep up the good work. You are being rewarded for it every day.
