First (((HUGS))). THis type of thing is never easy. But keep in mind he is your DAD. I just found my first step dad. And he has welcomed me back into his family after no contact for 26yrs like no time has passed at all. Paper does not change feelings. (((HUGS)))

True enough, I often forget that, LOL I have ALWAYS felt comfortable telling my mom exactly how I feel about things.......whether she liked it or not, I knew she'd love me afterward so I always just blurt it out and move on.

I never understood people who couldn't, but now that I have inlaws, I at least know what holding your tongue with family feels like, LOL Still can't imagine ever biting my tongue towards my sisters or mother like I do with my MIL or SIL, LOL

You won't lose him, just make sure you stay in touch.

I imagine your step dad would want to continue to be in your life too--sorry, you are going through this. Life always throws things at us--we never know why or what the outcome will be--you will figure this out.

Sorry you were hit with this... He's still your dad, though, regardless of whether he's married to your mom or not. It's how you feel about him and he feels about you that counts.

I hope your mom and step dad will stay civil with each other, but if they don't, do your best to stay out of the middle of it.

Aww I'm so sorry - You really won't lose him. Regardless of his relationship with your mom he still is whom he is to you - that won't change. *hugs galore*
