Alex, the stepdad, is in the Army and stationed in Fort Bragg, but every time he is home all four of us attend. On a regular day it is the three of us, and we make it a point to sit together and cheer her on as a family.
We do all birthdays together for Maelyn. We also go to each other’s birthday dinners with their own families, we do holidays together, we go to one another’s houses, we are literally always doing things together.
Her advice for others in similar situations?
Always respect the people involved because how you treat the other parents is a reflection of who you are
