I apologize to those of you that wanted to read this post. It was brought to my attention that it hurt another’s feelings and I thought it best to remove it since that was never the intention.
I write my blog for a number of reasons, but one of them is catharsis for the pressures and challenges I face as I go about my day to day living. Of huge emotional impact are my children and any difficulties they or we face. This includes my 2 stepchildren as well as my biological children.
It is an extremely painful topic and my post was not about pointing fingers or discussing blame. It was a very personal look at how much we love our kids, all of them, and how helpless I feel as a stepmom to do what I think is right. There are always 2 sides to any issue and in this case I’d say there are plenty more than that even. It was never intended as a debate or a he said/she said which is why links were not involved. It was my feelings, and that’s all.
To those of you that commented, I can not express how much I value your comments. Although they are no longer shown, they are still treasured.
To end on a happier note… here are the 5 most important people in the world to me.
