For the past 3 years I've been the main mother role in my step daughters life. She goes to her moms house one day a week. My husband and I have told her mom many times she can see her daughter anytime she wants, just let us know and not last minute. She can also call her when ever she wants. I've tried everything I can think of to get her mother more involved and it doesn't seem to work. I feel bad for my step daughter because she wants her mom to do more. I love that I get to take care of her and raise her, I love her and take care of her just like I do my daughter. But I know she wishes her mom did more. Anyone in the same boat? Advise? Should I just give up?
