I see all these conversations about how awful some people's mother-in-laws are, but I have been extremely blessed with a wonderful mother-in-law, whom I consider more of a mother than anything. She has helped us through so much, she was there for the birth of my first 2 kids, and came to the hospital to get them when my third was born. She takes time to come visit us if we aren't able to see her. We've lived with them on 2 different occasions, and usually spend the night there on Christmas Eve. She has 2 biological sons, my husband one of them, a step-son, a granddaughter that lives with her, and has adopted 3 kids. I am just extremely thankful that I have been blessed with someone who has become a mother to me:) I hope there are others lucky enough to have a wonderful mother-in-law!
