Message length 300 characters recommended

I had a step mother growing up and I had a very hard time connecting with her in the beginning.

It’s been about 20 years since she’s been in my life and the one thing she did to help connect with me was to tell me that she isn’t trying to replace my mom, she loved me and wanted us to be close, but she would never be my mom. She wrote that in a letter that I have kept all these years. I admired her for it. I respected her more because of that thoughtful letter.
