Please keep in mind the pain of someone who is childless; especially a Stepmother

I really am tired of hearing people say "It's so different when you have a bio child. It's just not the same".

Well let me tell you something. I have nothing to compare it to. Please do not steal the joy of when my stepchild hugs me and tells me "I love you". In my head, I hear you saying this and am afraid to reciprocate in fear of being hurt. Why can't you just say: "It's great the love of a child, isn't it?".

Let me tell you something else. You have no idea what it is like to be a Stepmother. Try having your heart ripped out over and over with reminders from society, family, and the television. Family is everything. Your kids are everything. Some of us have no children of "our own" but, make the best of what we have.

I may not know what it is like to be a Bio Mom but you have NO CLUE on what it is like to be a Stepmother.

How can I love them like my own if I can't treat them as such?
