About a week ago I took my kids to get all their well-child checks done. when I got there I went to check them in and suddenly the day took a turn on me.

They informed me That because I was a step-parent that I had 0 rights to them in the government's eyes this includes checking them in getting them a flu shot or any immunizations etc.

Now you may wonder why does this bothers me so much!

Well you see almost 6 years ago I made one of the best decisions of my life to get with the woman of my dreams but with that, I knew there was more to the mix than just her so I decided I would take it head-on. So I got to meet her kids and boy they flipped the world I knew upside down. They changed me took the life I knew and help me find a reason to change it. Ever since the day I met them I have treated them as if they were mine the whole time. Yeah, I have had a lot of bumps down the road of learning to be a father to them but the truth be told I wouldn't change it for the world.

For the last few years after I was no longer able to work I took on the responsibility of making sure everything that had to be taken care of for them was cause my wife works her butt off to make sure we are taken care of. She should not have to stress over everything so I decided to take some of the load off her. Now don't get me wrong I do help financially as well but honestly, it's beside the point.

So my problem is.....

That our so-called government says because they are not that of my blood that I should have 0 rights to my step kids. What in the heck is wrong with today's society I can't do anything for my kids that is Super Important because the government wants to outcast me cause I'm not the one who was there to create them well what about the fact that I stepped up and decided to take them on as my kids. I don't give a dam about blood. There is an old saying " Blood makes you related, Loyalty makes you family." I have been loyal to my step kids since long before they were my step kids. I don't even refer to them as my step kids. THEY ARE PLAIN AND SIMPLY MY KIDS!

I don't know if any other step-parents feel as I do but its time for this to change its not right for our government to base whether we can make a decision for our kids on blood relation but give us the power to care for them like a parent is supposed to rather than outcast us cause we are just the other person to marry their mother or father.
