Since my wife and kids are together literally 24/7, and I’m only around 1, maybe 2 days a week, it’s really difficult to have meaningful interaction with my kids. I feel like I’m just following around behind them and...

    Am I wrong?

    I have been with my partner on and off for 12 years and very 100% for the last 4 years. She has an 8 year old son that I have been like a mother to him since I found out she was pregnant. I have never seen myself as a step mother even though he does have a mother and father. I have always seen him as my own son, however when it comes to feeling like I am a mother it is not there. I am worried he...

I am bisexual, my brother and 2 cousins...

    Greetings!! My partner and I are the parents of a beautiful, 10 1/2 month old baby girl and want us both to have "equal" parental rights. We live in TN and once consulted a lawyer who basically told us the likelihood of a judge approving a second-parent adoption was pretty slim.
