      I never had my own children, but when i met my soon to be ex-husband his daughter was a year and a half old.  We married when she was 6.  She never called me mom, which was fine with me.  I helped raise her with our weekend visits, etc.  For 1 year, she was in sixth grade she lived with us full time.  I enjoyed that time being a “parent” but it’s always had its own challenges.  Now, i’m getting divorced from her father and she’s almost 16. She and I are still maintaining a good relationship with eachother which i am happy about.  The problem i have is that i’m not sure which role i play in her life now that i’m not going to be her stepmom anymore.  I don’t regret not having any of my own children, because at the time it was the right decision.  I’m just in a weird place at the moment with the divorce and all.
