Hi All, I have kind of a different situation and I'm not entirely sure how to handle it. I could use some advice!
I lost my mom to breast cancer when I was 7 years old. My dad re-married when I was 10 to the most incredible woman, she stepped in to raise me and my 2 sisters without batting an eye. When I was 16 she officially adopted my sisters and I. We have a great relationship but I know she often worries that i'm "disappointed" that shes the one here instead of my birth mom. Which is and isn't true, i miss my mom like crazy but couldnt feel any happier with my new mom.
I want to find a way to honor my birth mom at our wedding, all 3 sides of the family will be present so I want to be able to acknowledge in front of everyone that we wish my mom was here, but do it without hurting my new mom's feelings and making her feel like she's not as important.
sorry, I know that's long and complicated but any advice would be much appreciated!
