When my son Asher was born I was a single mom. My son is now 17 months old and I am engaged to the most amazing man I have ever met in my life. He is a wonderful partner, lover and father to Asher. Plans are in place for him to adopt him once we are married.
The issues is that he was brought up Methodist and his family is very religious. We have agreed to teach our children both religions, but I am already finding that difficult. This year Asher and I both celebrated our first Christmas and while I liked the family aspect of it, something just didn't feel right.
I really, really do not want my son or myself to lose our Jewish identities but I am unsure how to do that. Has anyone overcome this situation or is anyone going through now? I need help!
