My stepdaughter is 4, and will be 5 in November. She has lived with us for almost 2 years now. Every single time I tell someone that, they want to know why she lives with us and not her mom. I find it offensive that still so many people in the world think a child gets more, or better care and love when living with their mothers. We are a perfect example of that NOT being the case, and I was just curious to see if there are other stepmothers in a custodial household that feel the same way. How do you respond?
