Hi I'm Ariana,
I'm a young step mommy. 6 months ago I walked into a broken family. I received a lot more than I probably bargained for. I met the love of my life on a social media site. Well technically I met him once before in person at a baby shower, but it was short and brief. After a month of talking and hanging out, I finally said yes. The only reason I kept pushing us being in a relationship- off, was because of his son. This wasn't only my life I would have responsibility for anymore. Being with him meant that his son was now my son and this was another life I'd be responsible for. I mean college was right around the corner. It was a lot to take in. But I've always wanted to be a mommy and I have such a strong passion for children. Anyways the biological mother has never really been in the picture. She doesn't have custody of the baby. She sees him when she feels like it, which is rare. She just doesn't care about her child, but she makes it out to be that she's the best mother all over social media. There's court orders against her about the baby that she breaks all the time. She's expecting again too. I'm with the baby and my boyfriend pretty much every day. I have been for about 6 months now. When I'm not working or have classes, I'm right there with my beautiful boys. I get up in the morning with the baby, i rock/lay the baby to sleep, I feed him, I bathe him, I buy his necessities (formula, diapers, clothes, etc.), I play with him, I'm there for him at all times. He calls me mama, which in the beginning I was iffy about, but hey wtf Im more of a mommy than the real one. I've been in the baby's life since he was about 3-4 months. He's now 9 months. I guess what I'm afraid of is that, I'm so in love with this beautiful baby boy, I mean I really believe he's my son.. But what I'm afraid of is if bio mom finally gets herself together and goes to court to get him back. He's mine! I'd die in the place of that baby boy. I just don't want to lose my son (step son) but my son in my heart. Is there anyone out there in my similar situation?!
