My brother’s girlfriend has some kids from a previous relationship so I thought I would send them all a little something. I was thinking about using the GF customizable ornament, but when I asked for a favorite animal or something to put on the ornament, the requests didn’t work as I thought they would. So this is what I ended up with:
I realize that I didn’t mention the specifics here, but I am not their father, my brother is not their father, and neither of us have any kids of our own, so dad doesn’t factor here. I don’t consider this spoiling either; from what my brother has said they have had a rough life so this is just a little extra cheer for some kids that deserve it.
Well as a mom, the first thing I thought was that it was so nice that you were including them even though they were not biologically yours! It infuriates me when I hear of steps or adopteds that are treated differently. Great work and thanks for your kindness and your brothers. They will remember this.
