I'm engaged to a wonderful man who has a 3 year old son from a previous relationship. I've loved our weekends and time together, I love this kid like he is mine. We potty trained him and got him a new 'big boy bed', painted his new room and at Christmas we filled it with new toys and clothes
My fiancee and I both work full time, and he is also in school full time.
Two months ago the little guy's mom called my fiancee up and said "I cant take him anymore" and Kaleb moved in with us.
Kaleb is incredibly well behaved, potty trained, well mannered and all around wonderful. His mother has a job and CAN provide for him. She does not ask about him and hardly sees him now.
What kind of mother willingly gives her son away knowing that he will spend all of his time with a woman she does not know? How can you give birth to a child and then after 3 years abandon him? I just can't understand..
