I have 3 step sons, and 1 beautiful 21 month old son. I’m over people who see me out with my “brood” and feel its their duty to tell me how sorry they are that I don’t have a daughter, of people who ask if we’ll have any more children – then tell me they hope we we’re “blessed” with a girl. Is a family of all boys some how inferior to a family with a girl?! I feel like the luckiest mumma/step mumma in the world to have these happy, cheeky beautiful boys in my life, regardless of their gender. After trying for 5 years to have our son, before falling back on IVF, it hurts to hear that to some people he’s not not “perfect”. He certainly is to us.
