MY NAME IS LAURA WATTS WADDELL. I AM 47 YEARS OLD, AND HAVE 1 BIOLOGICAL CHILD CHARLIE WHO WILL BE 26 IN APRIL. HE IS STILL THE LIGHT OF MY LIFE. I HAVE 2 STEP SONS JAMES WADDELL 26 AND SHANE WADDELL 27 WHO ARE ALSO THE LIGHTS OF MY LIFE. I HAVE 2 STEP DAUGHTERS THAT DON'T HAVE CONTACT WITH US, AND I CERTAINLY HATE THAT. I FEEL THAT OUR CHILDREN, NO MATTER WHAT AGE MAKE OUR WORLDS GO ROUND. I HAVE 6 STEP GRANDCHILDREN AND 2 ON THE WAY. I HATE THE WORD STEP, IN MY HEART THEY AREN'T STEP, THEY ARE MINE, EVEN THOUGH I DID NOT RAISE THEM. I LOVE SPENDING TIME WITH THE KIDS AND GRANDKIDS. IF I WERE YOUNGER I WOULD TRY FOR ANOTHER.

You sound like a loving mom. The children are lucky to have you. Just keep loving them out loud. Even the girls. Send them notes and phone calls. Friend them on facebook. Never get angry or show your hurt when they don't respond. That is a very selfish age and they deserve this time. Try to remember your 20's. I probably talk to my mom more now than ever before. I love her dearly but I rarely spoke to her in my 29's unless she called me. I was too busy creating my own family.
