no, I was raised by my biological mother and father... I miss my father and I know how proud he'd be of all of his grand children; great grandchildren and great great grandchildren.... he died at the age of 58 when 2 of his grandchildren were only 3 & 4....

thanks for sharing your story.... and you should be proud of your step father

I was not. I wasn't even really "raised" by my father as my parents divorced when I was quite young. I can understand why your stepfather is your hero.

Wow! That is a lot of responsibility to take one - kudos to him.

My dad died when I was 12 and my mom remarried when I was 14 to a great guy and they had a fantatstic marriage. So I was lucky enough to have two great fathers growing up.

One of the brokers we worked with always said, "A sperm does not a father make".  Her husband was busy cheating on her as she was giving birth to their daughter.  She called her attorney from the hospital and filed for divorce...So kudos to you stepfather, I would have called him Dad...A

My father did very little "raising" me Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! although he lived under the same roof. My dad was an excellent provider but that was his focus... making money. That is why I decided I was going to actually RAISE my kids. I've been there for them every day for them. I've passed up many listing opportunities and more because I know what it's like to be ignored as a kid by a work-a-holic parent.

No, but I certainly am knowlegeable about step parenting.  A- my daughter has my husband who is the best daddy ever, but not by birth and I am the step mom to his two boys. My daughter also had another step parent... doesn't fall into the hero department.  She spent my daughter's entire life resenting her.
