Hi Alabama13! My first thought as I read your post was this: Most 15yr olds are pretty clueless about what their moms do for them..so I don't think it's something that you should feel slighted about. Honestly, most young people don't realize what their parents do for them until they are on their own...and especially once they have children of their own. I think if you just concentrate on keeping a close relationship with your step-children, you'll see good results in the long run. Hugs!
