Stepparents Confess What It’s Like To Raise Kids That Aren’t Biologically Theirs
Being a stepparent is a struggle. It can be difficult to step in and try to help parent a child who isn't biologically yours. And sometimes, no matter how hard you try, your efforts can fail. These people reveal what it's like being a stepparent.

Being a stepparent is a struggle.

1
Evil stepmother stereotype is a curse. I don't even have bio kids, I'm trying my best with my stepkids, but I'm always the bad guy. Makes me want to walk out.

A heartbreaking realization.

2
Love my stepson dearly, and can't get over the sadness of never being his 'real' mom. Look at the toys, snacks and spare socks in my purse. Tell me again I'm not a mom...
3
I'm sincerely scared that if my husband and I have a baby it will make my stepdaughter feel like I'm replacing her. I couldn't love her more if she were biologically mine.
4
I wish my stepdaughter was my biological daughter.  I feel like I missed out on so much of her life before I met her.

It's emotional.

5
I have a closer relationship with my stepdaughter than I do my natural son and it makes me feel guilty
6
My moms boyfriend told me he thinks of me as his stepdaughter because I'm the closest thing he will ever have to kids. It made my day.
7
I DONT HAVE STEPSON,
I HAVE A SON THAT HAPPENED TO BE BORN BEFORE I MET HIM
8
My stepdaughter and I have decided to learn to play  guitar together.
I feel so much joy that she asked me. Growing together as a family is everything.
9
My wife has always been uncommonly hard on her daughter. The past few years, it's turned into abuse. I love my stepdaughter dearly, but I feel powerless to help her because she isn't mine.

10
I feel like an evil stepmother because I can't connect with my stepson
11
I was niaeve when I said I could love my stepson the same way I would love my yet to be born biological child. I now know as much as I try, I will never have the same connection. I'm only human.
12
I love my stepson but I feel like I neglect my bio kid when we have my stepson on the weekends that we have him. 😞
13
My stepson has downs. All he talks about is his Mom, Dad and grandma. He gets upset if I pick him up from school. I've been in his life for 10 yrs. It is sad & exhausting but ill never give up.
14
I would like for my stepdaughter to call me mama, since I do more for her than her bio-mom

Awww!

15
I will always believe that my stepdaughter is my biological daughter. Because me and her mom had sex around that time. Look at the three of us and you'd say the same thing...
16
My wife recently told me that my stepson considers his biological dad his father, but I'm his dad. I'm the one he knows he can go to an I'll listen to him
Best feeling ever.!!

Wow.

17
I love my stepdaughter more than my biological daughter.
18
My husband and I have custody of my stepson and it breaks my heart that his biological mother breaks promises to him. Does she love him at all.....
19
It's unfair! Ive been mom to my stepson for 6 years and bio mom has been MIA. But because she gave birth to him she has more rights to him than me!!
20
When your stepson starts calling you 'mom,' and your heart sings. However, you have to play it off as normal so his bio mom doesn't yell at him. I ❤️you, bud. You'll get to live with me soon.
