i worry that if something were to ever happen to my husband i would not only lose him but my family since i don't believe i have any rights to my stepkids. it is hard for me to think that even though i have been in their lives for over 10years it could all change in an instant. i especially worry now that we have another child.. she could lose touch with her brothers...their BM has a baby ( father not in the picture) i have even considered volunteering to take her in if anything ever happened to her mother so that my kids never lose each other. it keeps me up at night... we have set it up that if my husband dies ( and we had sole custody due to frreak of nature where his ex died first) i would get custody of the kids but other than that i think they would up and move and i could never hear from them again...
