This is from something im reading very valid.
"Let me say this out loud: If you don’t love your stepchildren, you are not defective. There is nothing wrong with you. If you’re a stepmom that felt maternal love towards her children right away, count yourself as lucky because for the rest of us, it takes time and for some of us, it never happens. And for all of you that are shocked by that, please know that just because we don’t love our stepkids doesn’t mean that we aren’t going to do right by them. Get the images of Cinderella out of your mind, ‘cause it’s just not gonna happen."
