D you have any? If so, what were the circumstances? Divorce, death, abandonment? I have a step mom since a little less than a year after my mom died and I love her. We have had our ups and downs but our relationship always came back. Since I had Lucia, and at the prospect of my possible demise, they treat me like I'm golden or something. It almost makes me feel bad that the go to such extent to make me happy. They call me more, they cook for me, want me over, and on and on it goes.

I was thinking about this this evening and it made me wonder how others are with their step parents. My mom and I are closer that she and her own biological daughter who lives down the street from them and visits daily.

Yup. Sure do.

Step-mom, step-dad..... step-sisters.... no biggy. It is what it is (to me) I just roll with it. I like them all!

No, the oldest two are my half sister and half brother. My mother was separated from their father when he died. My mother was still pg with my half brother at the time. She had dated my father before when she was younger (OMG - cradle robber! They're 6 years apart but when a girl is 13 that's a big difference.) I guess when she was pg with my sister she was walking down the street one day with a friend and my father said he was going to marry her some day.
My father died when I was 14 and my mother never found another relationship (though she attempted to). So nope, no steps.

Me too. Maybe she wasn't but I don't think she was ready for the kind of relationship a guy his age wanted. I'm not sure if I remember right what she said, but I think she may have been the one who broke it off. She had my sister at 17 - and that guy was 8 years older and had been married w/kids before. He was no saint, that's for sure. There's also another kid (or two?) by another woman. Two of his other kids (I'm not sure who's) are close in age to the ones he had with my mother.

One of those kids is the one my mother was going to meet so she couldn't see that Wednesday that would have been the best day for the visit. Plans she/my sister apparently made before I was even informed they were coming up here.

Not me, but FIL was brought up by his step father after his natural father died. He loved him the same. That's all in my family.

Unless you count DH's great-great-grandfather who married his own step-mother! {waggling eyebrows}
It sounds like a scandal but she was his father's second, much younger wife and we think that he did it so that his (4? 5?) much younger siblings would have stability.

DH has a step mom. His parents are divorced. I have a step grandpa, but I never knew my bio g-pa so when my gma got married, it didn't take long before he was just "gpa"

I don't have any; but my MIL remarried several years after her DH died (my husband's dad) and all of her kids were grown. So my DH doesn't really look at him as a Step-dad. We like him and enjoy being around him. Our kids call him Grandpa.
