Hi, I am new to the group. I have one step child who is 10. The mother has not had contact in person in about 5 years. I thought I'd join to see if anyone has any tips on how to deal with step children. I don't feel as close to him as I did before my marriage to his father and now that I have my own kids it's difficult to make it all feel together and one family. It's been a rocky past few years and hope to have a network of step moms ideas or just talk it out with others in similar situations.
