I'm a stay at home mother and step mother.
I feel horrible, because I just don't feel REAL love towards my step daughter.


I really do want to love her truly, and have the connection I do with my own child.
But I find myself getting easily frustrated or annoyed with her.


At one point I did resent her. But it wasn't really he fault. It was the situation I was in.
But that's all past now. But I still can't seem to muster genuine love.

I do everything for her, she now calls me mommy. I'm her disciplinarian and the one she runs to when she is upset. I do everything that a bio mom would do with little to no help.

So why won't love happen. I really do feel bad about this.

How old is she? And try spending time with her, just you and her. I found it impossible to love a child we thought my husband conceived before we got together, but I realized it was the mother causing me to resent the child and not like her.

Her and I go out every Friday afternoon to McDonalds while her dad stay home with the baby for a milkshake. That is the only day we can do something without baby.

But thank you!
