Have you ever longed for an alternate family? Ashley has a best friend, and I want her mom Peggy to be my mother in law. She's always been like a second mother to Ashely, she's kind, she's loving, she's funny but most of all she accepts us and our family the way it is. Ashley's real family does not, we send out joint Christmas cards with pictures of us as a family they send back cards addressed to Ashley and Emma, I don't exist. It's always been this way, I try not to let it hurt my feelings but really it's been 6 years. I'm here and I am not going anywhere. I am the second mother to your granddaughter, your great granddaughter get used to it already. Today in the mail was a Christmas card addressed to our family and a book called "Heather has two mommies" from Peggy and her husband. I love it, I love that it was from them, I love that Ash has some "family" in her life that accepts her and I both. I can't imagine how I'd feel if my family treated her so poorly.
