I'm a step monster, but an estranged one. I shan't bore you with the details but it got too difficult to see then or have a relationship just over 4 years ago. In September this year they will be 14 and 12..wowzers.
About a month ago oldest stepson found me via facebook and added me as a friend - not sure what his motive is - or even if he has one but wow.
We've been intouch about 1x per week since then just a quick email chat but its all very strange. very very strange.....
The boy is ignoring this in case it comes to nothing - too painful a box to reopen I guess.
