Dear Step Daughter

I miss the relationship we use to have when you were 3, then 4 and then wow, you became 5.  Now you are 9 and have hated me for the past couple of years. It all started when your mother realized that you and I actually had a relationship and she was too jealous to leave us alone. Yet your mother was more concerned in buying you things then actually spending time with you like we did. And like me and my biological daughter your age did.  I think this made you angry.  Angry at me and angry at your stepsister.  I noticed you started having more and more phobias and less respect for me. Your mother seemed to keep raising the bar in the things she would buy you. A cell phone at 5. A television and dvd player for your room at 6. A Mac computer at 7.  And the list went on.  I tried very hard to continue the relationship but your mom just kept treating me and your dad more unfairly.  I miss that you aren’t that sweet girl that use to come to our house to have fun.  i think you do too. Now our house is so unhappy.  I worry your daddy and I won’t make it. I worry that you may at one time resent what your mother has done but it will be too late. Whatever happens, I love you but you are still too young to understand what your mother is able to accomplish.

Love, Stepmom
