If you have been there for 10 years you are in no way inadequate. You chose to be a stepmother because you fell for the father of this child/children. If you were not enough he would have left you long ago. It is a hard place to be, as a child has only 1 mom, but can adapt to many father figures. Do not underestimate yourself, if you love the man, then you must love his kids otherwise this relationship would have failed long ago. I am not in a position to understand your dilemma as I am a single mom and I refuse to allow anyone near my child or me, I am far too overprotective of my only child and since the father is deceased. I will not allow anyone else to get near us. You have accomplished something I never will, so I think you should look to the positive side of yourself and know that this appears to be a problem to you, but not him, or they would have been gone long ago. Good luck to you, have more faith in yourself. You must be doing ok otherwise he would have been gone years ago. God bless you my dear and stop doubting youself, you obviously have offered this family a great part of you.
