Young Stepmother

I am a relatively young newlywed at 20 years old. My husband has a 2 1/2 year old daughter who is with him 24/7. He is in the middle of a custody case with the biological mother who walk out on my SD when she was less than 2 months old. Most times with us are good, I am the only mother my daughter knows (I have been in her life since 3 months and with her father since 6) and she doesn't understand the issue her biological mother has with me since she decided 7 months ago to come back around. I have tried to encourage a relationship with my SD and her biological mother, but it seems as if I will always be cast the villain, the one who's taking HER child away. But overall I love being a mom and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, I love my SD and I am fortunate to have come into her life at such a young age.

speak no more, let her be the ***~~~you just keep being the mommy with no mallase in your heart and, he will see what a looser she is all over again~~~ put baby to bed, cook a light dinner and watch a movie with him~~~ sure to steal his heart :}

there will come a time when your step daughter will be just barely old enough to understand whats going on. that will be up to you and your husband to tell her why her biological mom says mean things. i hope you guys dont say equally bad things though. she may rebell because of it. i wish you the best.
