Today's OPP is from April:

Yi Slacker & Steve,
I am a childless stepmom with an enormous desire to be a mother. My husband has two kids and I love them, but he doesn't understand the emptiness I feel inside knowing I'll never have that biological bond of unconditional love with his kids. We have talked about trying to have a baby together, but my husband is skeptical. He thinks it would cause a bigger rift in my relationship with his kids, but I think it would give me something to share with the kids, as well as give me the biological bond of unconditional love I want so bad. Do you think a new addition to a blended family would cause more problems than it would solve?
What’s your advice? 

Slacker and Steve - OPP: I Want My Own Kids 4/19

April is a stepmom for two kids she really cares about. She wants to have her own child so she can have the same biological love her husband has for his kids. He thinks it might cause problems to bring a baby into the family and April thinks that it would be something the entire family could bond over. What’s your advice?
