the Father and I have been dating for almost 3 years. He has a child that is turning 4 this November. (So I have been in this childs life as much as his Father has since he was 1 years old).
The boys memory of his Father has always been with me, and I am certainly a step mother figure. The mother, is CRAZY. They were dating for 3 months before she got pregnant, and decided to follow through with the pregnancy... not a surprise it didn't work out ----- they are completely different people that barely knew each other. however, this is certainly a woman who is extremely insecure. She has been living with her parents (she is 37) for 2.5 years now and refuses to get a job.
The problems now are, her not allowing the child to spend more time with us. We have an agreement that is filed through the courts that was agreed upon in mediation however, she STILL refuses to recognize me as an important figure in this childs life. The Father and I are certainly together for the long haul and crazy for each other. She is really damaging the little boys brain by telling him negative things about the father and myself...
How do we get more time with the child? would the courts ever recognize me as an important figure in the childs life --- especially since I have been in his life as a motherly figure since he was 1 years old? when will she realize that it is in the childs best interest to accept me? It hurts us so much that she is hurting the boy.... help help help
