Hey sunny!

I am Stacey. SM to three - SD 13, SD 9, SS 6. I have been in their lives for five years now, though I "officially" became their SM three years ago when DH and I married.

There are two BM's in my saga BTW!

This board should be interesting, to say the least.............

I am SM to two lovely young ladies (OSD 14 & YSD 9). My DH is in the Army & deployed to Iraq. Our CO gives me visitation while he's deployed (at the children's request & with BM & the judge's consent).

I am a SM to SD who is almost 8. I've been married to DH for 3 years, together for 4. DH and I live in TX, SD and BM live in OH. DH and I have a 22 month old son together. I met SD when she was young enough that she doesn't remember a time when her parents weren't together or a time when I wasn't around. It seems to have made the bonding with SD a lot easier. :)

Hi all!

I used to post way back when on the SP board. I can't access this during the work day, so hopefully I'll be able to catch up at night.

I was a SM with degree in BM. Until recently, I was a SM to a 15½ yo SD that I had known since she was 3½. I also have 4 children of my own: ODS 10, MDS 8, and twin DDs 6½. The kids and I live in PA. Their father, the orginal JA (yes, I coined that acronym many moons ago) now lives in OH.

Through the years, I have literally been on both sides of the fence and have walked many miles in both sets of shoes.

I am a bio-mom of 3. DS is 18 and away at college :0( DDs are 15 and almost 12. I have primary physical custody and my ex has EOW and one evening a week. However, only my youngest has gone for regular visitation. I am looking forward to the discussions on this board.

Hi!
I'm a BM to a DS(8)- 50/50 week on/week off custody and a good co-parenting relationship with ex; he has a long-term relationship with his GF but he doesn't live with her; he shares a house with his mom.

In a long-distance relationship with DSO who has DS(10) for 3+ years; we each have a residence 250 miles apart and primarily spend our time together on weeks that we don't have the kids; he has an identical custody schedule, except holiday. He and his ex had a very bad divorce and subsequent custody battles, the co-parenting is non-existent, and their relationship alternates between passive-aggressive and volatile. Essentially he is still a DSO and not a DH because I am really hesitant to introduce this destructive relationship into my DS's life.

Hello, I am happy to have found this board, I think it is very much needed!

I am a SM with 2 skids, my SS is 18 and my SD is almost 12. They have 2 different BM's and 2 very different situations. My SS lives with us full time (his BM is in another state, quite far away). My DH has essentially raised him alone with little help from BM. My SD is the opposite, she lives primarily with her BM and we have her at our house about 1/3 of the time. We also see her for many sports and school events (whether it's 'our' time or not), we end up seeing her a lot more than 1/3 of the time. My DH and I have been married for a little over 1 year, together for 3 years.

I have no kids of my own yet but hope to change that very, very soon!
