A Letter from a Mother to a Bonus Mother

Where do I even begin? I will start by saying thank you, thank you for accepting the responsibility to help raise my child. I know in today’s society there are many people who have issues with step mothers but I am thankful for you as my child’s bonus mother. You see I’ve learned that love is the currency in the kingdom of heaven, and the love that you have given my child I know was sent down from heaven. I know there are people who believe that it isn’t necessary to even acknowledge you, but how could I not, when my child admires you. I know it may be difficult at times, but don’t think for one second that I would undermine your effort to raise a child that’s not a part of your bloodline. I understand it is a sacrifice that some choose not to handle, but the Father of my child chose you to help carry the mantle. Now there are two Queens and a King to help raise this child, but I hope in your care they continue to smile. There is only thing I request of you, and that is pray to God always when you feel like life is getting the best of you. The reason I have this one request, is because I know when a Queen has a relationship with Christ there is nothing to hard you can finish the fight.

  1. Merry Christmas – spread the love – candle by candle and flame by flame – during the Christmas Season and on every day following. We have ALL been tapped to be God’s angels here on this small planet we share – and we will be MOST needed when the new administration takes over.

  2. Love this! There are many women that need to read this. If someone else in this world wants to love our children, we should embrace them. We as women must learn to quit being so bitter and learn to love more…

    1. Yes we all should learn to love more and yes some people can be bitter but I don’t think it’s so much that they are bitter I think it’s not enough emphasis on the appreciation of the bonus parent. They make sacrifices as well that sometimes aren’t notice.

      1. Agreed! I love my stepfather and all that he has done for my daughter and I. I make sure to let him know and to celebrate him whenever appropriate. He has been there more than my biological father. I know far too well how blood doesn’t mean a thing when it comes to being in a child’s life. I’m experiencing it now with my own daughter. I definitely feel that bonus parents should be celebrated.

        I love what you’re doing. I look forward to the next letter. Keep up the good work and be blessed hun!
