Integrating an illegitimate (though not really) child into your “traditional” family
09/22/2010 at 12:03 PM

I posted the otherday, but did not use a very informative subject line, so, perhaps that is why there has been little "comment"...

i'm hoping this time around, i'll get a little more traffic...

sorry to repost - am just eager to get some advice...

-------------

The first post is in this forum (Where should i start)...

My situation involves trying to be, kind'a, a dad to my nephew... and our relationship has grown "deep" over the past few months...

his dad is out of the picture and he needs someone to keep an eye out for him and to, well... guide him towards adulthood...

he is 14 (he is "blood" to my wife, her sisters son)...

the reason i used the illegitimate child analogy is that my wife and his mom (her sister) are, well "at odds" and, well... my wife is NOT unboard with this idea...

we have our own children (17 year old daughter, 11 year old son -- BOTH are OK with what i'm doing! and we have spoken often about how i go about doing this)...

anyway...

i wonder, does anyone know of a forum specific for fathers of illegitamate children, as their "struggles" would be MOST simialr to mine...
