I am currently 4w5d pregnant. I have 2 teenage stepsons. Actually one will be 20 this year, the other will be 18. I know this is not the usual circumstance. The 19 year old lives with us while he is in college. I want both to feel part of this, as well as having a bond with the baby despite the huge age difference. Any advice?
I know my circumstance is different but my step son was 1 when my son was born. They have an amazing bond even though they don't see each other a lot. I think just being open and honest and not expecting them to be all mushy our the baby. I know there's a bit difference between 13 and 19.
