My sister is planning a sweet 16 for my niece. She has told me that myself, my new husband and my adult bio daughter (and her husband) are invited but not my step children (ages 19 & 22). She said that they have invited a lot of people and to include stepchildren would just be too much. I'm newly married however my step children have recently been attending family functions. I'm torn because I love my sister and niece however I'm thinking that as sad as it makes me, I need to "walk the walk--we are one family and it's not acceptable to include one adult child and not the other two. Thoughts?
