Ready to give up
I've been in the picture for over 6 years. Married almost 4. I keep trying with the kids, one of which is with us regularly and is 15. I don't have any of my own kids so I was excited for this role. Well I get the work and get to spend my money on kids yet get no recognition or validation of being a step mom. I hate it. I love my husband but I want to tell him that I don't want anything to do with the kids.
