108. My step children are in no way resented...
My soon to be wife has her tubes tied. So when I decided that I was in love for this woman for good...I knew that I was kissing the chance of having any children of my own goodbye. One of the reasons - perhaps - I look back on my own situation with disdain.

But - I decided that I should not look a gift horse in the mouth, and try to do my best with the children that have been charged to my care. Ablsolutely my choice. I think I've told them this. If not - I'll make sure I tell them tonight.

I do somewhat resent the real father - no support, 7 DUIs, major physical abuser...3 out of the last 7 years in jail - yeah, slack! Nonetheless - I try to keep them in contact with him...I dont run him down in front of them. But for the most part - he is content to drink his life away. However - at this point, they've lived most of their lives with me. They talk like me, they move like me, they just look like someone else...

The grandchildren dont know the differnence...Pappy is will be years before they make the connection.

I'll try to write something later that might more accurately define my views on this subject. I'm not religious - I don't want Roe repealed.

It's really the politics/concept of "Choice" that gets my goat...I'll start a new thread and try to explain.

I'll try to tone it down a bit...maybe I wont say anything - I dont want Roe changed - and that puts us all on the same team - for the upcoming battle.

Sorry to ruffle and feathers...
