NOTE: Due to the ongoing pandemic, we are focusing on meetups via video conference, with an occasional backyard, park, or patio get-together thrown in. New members are definitely welcome to join the video conferences, and access information is included within meetup event details. We look forward to getting together more in person for support and friendship after the public health concern has cleared.
There are so many challenges in step-family life. People who haven't been in this situation themselves and have never had to think about it usually do not have any practical understanding of the complexity we face daily. This group is a home base for being understood by others who actually "get it" and can offer insights without judgement. It’s a place to work through challenges and emotions without creating drag on your relationships with the kids or their biological parents.
Whether just entering a serious relationship with someone who has kids, working through the teenage years, dealing with adult step-children... no matter where you are in your journey, there’s someone here whose situation will resonate with you and with whom you can also share your experience.
Our meetups include venting and laughter as well as sharing perspectives, problem-solving, and plenty of support of one another through this journey we're all on. Let's get together and support each other and make friends along the way!
