My stepson is 1 and a half, I've known him since he was 7 months old. (We didn't really know about him until then, mom and dad never really had a relationship sadly). Around the time the child turned 9 months old, the mother started kind of "pawning" him off on us. Neither of us minded. It was to the point where he only slept at her house and sometimes was there for the early morning. My stepson called me mom one day in front of his real mother and she blew up. I didn't tell him to call me mom or anything like that. But then she started completely denying visitation. She tells me it's all my fault. I've tried telling her that I am not trying to take her place or anything like that. She constantly tells my husband's to dump me and date her. She tells me that if I get out of the picture then he would see his son a lot more. I'm really starting to feel like him not getting to see his son is my fault. I really do love my husband with all of my heart and I love his son very much. This is just so frustrating that she'd get away with all the harassment and denying visits.

He has visitation, he also has joint legal custody. He recently did file for custody. The mother has a violent felon living with her whom has hit her while she held the baby. We have that in voicemail from both the mother and her bf. The court date is in May. We are trying to get him a lawyer. Just didnt know what to do until May :P
