She showed! Hooray! The kids were so excited and I'm one relieved stepmama.
So after 8 weeks of being MIA bm
wants to take ss and sd to dinner for valentines day. The kids were so excited and I am happy for them. Well sd wanted to get a special box of candy for bm. Great...so we go to the store and I let her pick one out. I go in her room and she has the box set out with a card she made and one of her stuffed animals to give bm. It was so sweet...then the horrible fear or thought dawns on me. What if she bails or doesn't show up? I know it will crush her. I also know there's nothing I can do about it. I pray with all my heart that she will show. I never knew as a stepmom how much their pain and disappointment would sting me too. Ive been in their shoes as a kid and it sucks. Any good vibes sent for a positive outcome are appreciated. I really want them to have a positive relationship with bm....its so hard when you have no control of the other person yanno?
