I have a child with my husband of 11 years and now raise him with my husband and live in boy friend. Its been three years.
Our boy has never been happier. He is very well adjusted, confident, loved, acknowledged as a part of the "team" and is not wanting for any grown up attention. His life is everything I wanted for a child I parent. I wouldn't have it any other way. It takes a village to raise a child and every child needs constant and mindful adults in their life to grow up feeling that they belong and are taken care of. Our boy certainly has that and some. In my belief he is well set up for the future he has.
I suggest doing a search in the tags for "children" "kids" "parenting" or any other tag that seems interesting... hope you find something useful.
