"YTA- People are crazy and this is why horrible things happen in the world in the first place, cause people enable the craziness. You are not Jays mother . His mother passed away . Your husbands ex was his “mom” first and you don’t see her acting like how you are over him. You should’ve adopted Jay when you got cheated on 4 years ago if everything you did was for him. If you really cared about Jay you would’ve never stayed and had him bond even deeper all this time ,but this isn’t about him it’s clearly about you . You met Jay when your husband with with someone else already and still loved him and probably wanted to be his new mommy then .Talking about how you spent 4 years getting in good with the grandparents so you’d have more of a standing to get what you want . That’s master manipulation. You guys married so quickly so you could secure what you wanted and that was Jay . You just wanted to be praised and looked at like a savior for being a motherless child’s mother . You met your husband when you both were grieving and knew everything he was going through and that he was with someone else ,I’d be surprised if you didn’t help end their relationship in the first place . Youre using a child to feel good about yourself .You sound evil and crazy . How many bottles did you make or diapers did you change because you became “mommy” when Jay was 3 .Meanwhile you watched his ex be mommy before you,and during that time frame of him being a baby she was the only “mom” he knew. You got into a relationship with someone that had a child ,when you break up you should be fully ready to say goodbye to that child too. It sucks but that’s how it happens .Everyday there are step parents that go above and beyond for their step children as if the children are their own . When those relationships end so does that parental role . What you did was not normal and insanely dramatic. You got cheated on and really spent the next 4 years trying to secure a child that you spent probably 3 years being apart of their life .Bet if Jays mom was alive you wouldn’t have done this. No , you would be seen for the crazy ex that you are .Bet if his ex before you would’ve had that baby she miscarried she would be Jays “mom” again ,and once again you’d be looking crazy. You are delirious and if your ex husband gets a lawyer you’re done for . He’s going to move on and be with another woman so Jay will have a stepmom and you want to stick around playing baby mama to a child that is NOT yours . Unless Jays dad is abusive or a piece of crap dad that Jay needs protection from ,you’re the one that’s going to be the cause of issues in Jays life with your entitlement behavior. No judge is going to entertain a full on custody agreement with child support visitation etc . for a child you adopted one day before you filed for divorce while also admitting all the bs you pulled in writing. I have a step child that lost their mother as a baby too and I would never do this if me and hubby broke up . You’re insane this is not about Jay it’s definitely about you . If you loved him and wanted him so badly apart of your life and can’t live without him you would’ve adopted him years ago and would not have plotted for all the years you did . “I’m the only mom he’s ever known “ is such a tear jerking notion and what you’re trying to use as a full on justification for your actions ,really it just shows this is about you which isn’t healthy for Jay . Get help ."
