I was lucky to have lots of knowledge and support to help me get past the turbulent first 5 years of step-parenting, but it wasn't easy! Now 12 years into this journey, I feel like our family has crossed those choppy waters and we are standing on a solid bedrock of almost normal!
I became passionate about sharing the important lessons I learned and some important truths I have confirmed about the best approach to helping raise another’s children. Now I mentor stepmoms one-on-one and I also run a Facebook group called The Spectacular Stepmom where I fiercely protect the positive energy and instantly banish anyone who dares to say: "You knew what you were signing up for." Sheesh.
