Yeah. Very weird!



I think DS looks like my ex and my mother the most. I see the similarities between DS and DH. And if you didn't know any better, you'd think that he was the bio dad. I really wish he was.... It'd be nice not to have my ex in the picture.

Does he visit with your ex a lot?

Unfortunately we have a 60/40 parenting plan (I have him 4 days a week, he has him 3) until he starts kindergarden. Then it goes to Monday thru Friday and every 3rd weekend with me. He really fought for the parenting plan we have. In my opinion a lot of his fighting was just a tactic to hurt me. He knew the more time he could take from me the more it would hurt. He quit his second job and got an apartment he couldn't afford to show that he could care for Jace. The month after our divorce and the parenting plan was established he was evicted from his apartment. A few months later his car was re-possessed. He couch surfed for a few months (which he hid from me so I couldn't do anything about it). He's not involved in Jace's betterment at all (I take him to all of his doctors appointments, dentist appointments, his speech/physical therapy appointments, and spend time teaching him). In my opinion he wants Jace for the status symbol of being seen as a good father. I know that all he does when he's at his dads is watch TV, graze eat, and play (he's able to tell us these things now). What's worse is that his dad and his new wife live with a roommate who has a son who is 4. This kid is a hellion! Jace comes home all the time and says that this kid hits him, beats him up (there's bruises, too) and breaks his toys. We ran into his dad (the roommate) and the kid at an event and Jace like ran into our arms and was like, "Jett's mean!!! Keep him away!" :(



Sorry that got really long.

I'm so sorry. I wouldn't ordinarily wish for a child's father to not be involved but I can definitely see how it might be better for him since he has a good relationship with your husband. My dad became my DAD when I was about three. I've never known life without him there and he has done all the daddy things a girl could want for and more. His adoption of me finally went through when I was 14, but it was more for me to have his name than anything because he'd always been my dad. My biological father was an alcoholic and in and out of my life until I was about 10, and then I reestablished contact with him shortly before he died when I was 21. But I still have my daddy. :) Your husband will fill in the gaps too.



It makes it all the more special having donor eggs from my sister too. She is my dad's biological child.

Aw :) What a sweet situation. I'm glad your dad (adopted dad) was there for you. What a good man. I'd love to adopt one day.



I knew that you were going to use your sisters eggs for you IVF but that's really cool that she's your dad's child :) That'd be so special. I'm hoping you get your baby, girl! :)

I hope I have one soon. I'm praying for a BFP in a few weeks. I'm really sick of AF.

Having a pity party over here right now. I really wish I could have my husbands biological child, sometimes this is easy but sometimes it's so hard. My inlaws don't make it any easier.

I know it seems hard now but I'd be willing to bet lots of money that the first time you hold your baby you will realize that everything ended up working out for the best. I would take Hope over a biological child of mine any day of the week.
