I will be gaining 3 and my Fiance will be gaining 3 so we are like the Brady bunch! I’m nervous about it but I think we will be okay. I’m not expecting anything easy and neither is he. I love my future step kids and he loves my kids as well. We talk constantly about our roles in their lives.

His ex-wife is just completely different. She’s already doing some things that push her son (9) away. Our home will be very different from hers.

My ex-husband is very involved with our kids. I’ve made it clear to mine that Fiance is not their “new daddy”, that they have a daddy who loves them and will always be daddy. But Fiance does care about them adn wants to be a part of their lives.

Good luck to you and your new family! I’m glad I’m not the only one who will have a big brood 🙂

@realtreegal:  I too am not in this situation, but I just wanted to say I think you’re awesome too! Ten kids will be quite the adventure! :] I hope you get a bunch of joy from having a large family!

@realtreegal:  I gained two young children (5&8) and everything has gone wonderfully. So far I love it.

I cannot imagine 10. Will they all live with you?

I will be gaining 2 adult children. We get along fine and since they don’t live with us, I love to see them come AND go. 🙂

@realtreegal:  goodness, that’s quite a lot.  (I totally realize you live in AZ, but I’m envisioning how I’d squeeze them into a small Boston-sized house.) What are the ages?

I’m gaining a 7 year old step daughter. She is so cute and she loves me…it’s very fun, I just hope she continues to love me as much into her teen years. Her father and I plan to have at least one child together so it will be very interesting to see how she deals with that after being an only child for so long.
