My husband and I started dating about 2 weeks before my step daugther was even born. Him and the mother were in a high school relationship when the child was conceived and actually broke up before she found out she was pregnant. They did not ever get back into a relationship from that point and my husband was not even sure if the child was his due to the mother having cheated on him during their relationship. After the baby was born a DNA test was done and proved that the child was in. From that point on its been a hard road. The mother wanted my husband to sign over rights, but my husband refused and fought for partial custody. He did win, however this did not all get solved until the baby was already 9 months old, so it was and still is to have an emotional connection with his daughter. We had a child of our own when the daugther was a little over 2 and now our child being 3 years old is confused about the situation. He asks me if I am his mother and wonders why his sister is not home with him. I really need advice on how to explain this to my own child much less continue to deal with the frustrations of this relationship. The mother is not very open to having a relationship with me and my husband still holds so much anger and resentment towards her that he wants nothing to do with her. He only gets his daughter when he can and thats that. Please help!!!
