Snapshot of a Stepmother
I don't know any little girls who dream of becoming stepmothers. I have regrets of my past but I still look forward to the future as hopefully as I can muster. Being a stepmom for over 5 years has been both a thankless and awesome experience. At first, I never thought that the title had really much to do with my identity, but being an outsider to the dynamics of a broken home - these happenings directly impact me, my lifestyle and the future of my own biological children. I was and still am a foreigner to my family's household and history. It's a conflict: being too involved, not caring enough, stepping in where I shouldn't, and yet needed to always be accessible; you are wicked no matter what.
