Do you think there is a stronger bond with your child vs. stepchild?

Me and my son have a wonderful relationship. Alot of times I can sense what he is feeling, and we don't have to say anything or talk, to sit and work on something together and have a good time. But my stepdaughter and I have a rough time getting along, let alone sitting down and working on something together, or spending time together. I love her, care about her, worry about her just as I do my son. But to me there is still seems to be a difference. There is not an easy relationship, we have to work at it. My husband thinks it is a bunch of hogwash that me and my son have some special bond. He says being a stepchild or your own child doesn't make a difference. I think when you carry a child for 9 months inside you, that you do form some kind of bond. Maybe it is something that men don't quite understand, or maybe it is just something that I have experienced. What is your opinion on this?
