Some people have great fortune with their step mom/ bonus mom type relationships.
My stepmom didn't care for me that much. We just had a poor emotional connection.
She was super strict but caved in more with her own biological children.
She gave me the basics ( not the emotional side so much) but she helped me succeed in life.
She was stable and well focused.
It wasn't perfect but I've seen some biological parents who were also just a mess and disconnected too. We are all human.
