You didn't mention your step daughters daddy/ your husband. He really should be the one who sees to it you get to see the step daughter more.Wouldn't that, by necessity, mean he got to see her more, too? Anyway, I would just talk to her on the ph. when you begin to miss her. Make full use of any other means of communication, too. Texting, computer and old fashioned writing. If your step daughter is a Nov. 2007 baby, I realize you must communicate with her mom in order to also communicate w/ the step daughter. Don't give up, though. One day the step daughter will appreciate it. I'm sorry you are missing out on the joys at this age.

well that sounds tricky! do u have any other family members that would b willing to help? i have two step children myself and it is very important to develop a good healthy relationship with them! u should do all u can to see her! lets face it, the word stepmother is scary to a child so making them trust and look up to u is very important!
