What we’re about


Run by Mary T. Kelly, M.A., a marriage and family therapist in private practice for over 18 years. Specializing in working with all those associated with stepfamilies, especially stepmoms and stepcouples.

A support group for women who are dating, living with or married to one with children (whether they have their own or not). 

**Meet and commiserate with other women who are trying to figure out what being a "stepmom" means.

**Dispel the myth of the “blended” family...Don’t worry if yours looks lumpy, and other issues that need a family strainer.

**Learn about the unique challenges and expectations present in stepfamilies.

**Develop realistic expectations of themselves as "stepparents" in relationships with their stepchildren.
