Would everyone like to introduce themselves?
OK , I guess I'll go first. My name is Debbie and I live in Pennsylvania. I have3 sons ages 23,18,&17.plus 3 stepsons ages 19, 12 &7. The oldest 2 boys don't live with us.The 23 y.o. has mild mental retardation and he lives in his own apt. (with some assistance from me and a home care provider). The 19 y.o. lives in Ohio with his new wife and baby( our 1st grandbaby). The other 4 live at home with us. We have some extra challenges in our family as you can see. My 18 y.o. has Aspergers( a type of high IQ autism) and my 12 y.o. has ADHD andODD(oppositional defiant disorder).My dh and I have been married 1 year and 7 months now. My sons fatherhasn't seen them in about 2 years even though he only lives 40 minutes away.I have been the custodial parent always but we have never had a co. My husband took custody of his youngest 2 sons 2 years ago but he doesn't have a co either. If you're doing the math yes,we got married just under 3 1/2 months after we first met. I work PT in a nursing home as a nursing supervisor( night shift) and my dh is a regional run truck driver(home most weekends but on the road through the week). All right ,enough about me and my family.

Hi im miriam.. im 24 im a mother of 3 gorgeous babies.. my ds4.. dd2.. sd1.. my journey as a SM isn't like most.. my dh and I separated and a month after our separation BM got pregnant.. it's been a rollercoaster full of drama.. tears .. andof course laughter and joy .. but I wouldnt change it for the world.. my sd saved my marriage id like to think and dh has changed tremendously since we reconciled.. I've been a SM since sd was 2 months old so a little over a year now and we currently have joint custody 50/50 so mon to mon every other week.. I've raised my sd.. BM has been in the pic.. but she picks and chooses when she wants ti be a mom to my poor baby.. so I guess Ive stepped up when she's not there for her and thanks to that.. sd and I are super close.. I love her as my own and care for her as my own.. and that's it I think!.. lol.. im super excited Lucy started this group and I can't wait to get to know you all!
