Hi! I am married to a man that has a 6yr son from a previous marriage. We have a 2yr son together. My husband has full costudy of him, his birth mom signed off her rights when the child was only 18mths old. The problem : I want a second child of my own, a little girl. But my husbands family say it wouldn't be fair to my step-son. My step-son is a very hard to handle child do to his behavior. Very argumentive, never listens, screaming tantrums on a daily base. My husband knows i really want a second child of my own and the only reason why I dont allow myself to become pregnant is because of my stepson,. He makes ours lives miserable at times. Occasionly my stepson greatgrand mother(from his mom's side) well ask to keep him a couple days a month then again not often cuz she can't handle his behavior which he has been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder. On those days my husband, myself and our 2 yr old are able to be a real family we can go out to eat and so on. It just sucks because I love kids and my son is just a prefect little boy. My pregnancy was great my labor was awesome all naturel. We have a big house, finance are good. The only thing stopping us is my stepson. My husband just keeps telling me not to let him stop me from being happy but I can't help to stop and think how my day would be with him my son and a new baby. Would should I do? What would you do if in my shoes?
