I am a step mom to an eight year old little girl. Her dad has had sole custody since she was six months, and I have been her full time mom for the last four years. Her BM is in the picture, she visits her every second weekend. Unfortunately this visit usually involves my SD being put in front of the tv, or meeting the newest boyfriend, so needless to say they are not that close....

Anyway, I was going through my SD's backpack, as she only has two days left of school, and is starting to bring home a lot of her school work. I found a newspaper that each student had made. One article had to do with the environment, another had to be a fictional story, and the third was labelled "My Hero: Jessica". Needless to say the tears started flowing! She wrote about how I m her step mom, I protect her, and teach her the right thing to do, and how she tells me eveything because she know that she can be honest with me, and I will always help her...

There are times when it is so worth it! For a lot of you step-mom's out there whose SK's can't say how much you mean to them, your effort IS appreciated and you ARE loved!

Thank-you for that! I have a 9 year stepson and I think he hates me most days. But I do hope he knows how much I truly love him and want him to be happy. This just made me feel good, thanks!!!

That is so awesome!! I'm glad that you feel loved and it makes it so worth it. Just the other day, my 6 year old SD made a picture of Daddy and Nyla and she wrote Dad and Mom on the page!

Its a lovely feeling isn't it Jessica. Dontcha just well up with pride and know that its all worth it. What you are teaching her is how to be a great mother when her time comes. Good on you girl, you keep up the good work! You are an inspiration to us all and you probably don't even know it.

I agree very lovely, and I can just imagine the tears that were flowing. That little girl cherish's everything you do together. She is a very lucky girl to have you for a SM especially with the BM she seems to have. Well done!
