Second-wives, Bonus children, step dads, other dads.... BLENDED FAMILIES!!! Parents- We go by many names, we wear many hats and we take many different forms. Sometimes we were born into our families, other times we have to create, and recreate them in the best way for us. It gets tough and sometimes people don't understand our unique situations. But, we stick around day after day because the benefits far outweighs the many, many tough times. I'm starting this group so that we "non-traditional' families could connect and remind each other that we all go through things and IT WILL BE OK!!
