It just wasn’t in the cards for me to have children of my own.  Because of these two amazing, beautiful, sweet souls I get to share and experience the joy of being a (step) mom.

It’s a tricky thing being a step.  You married in. They already have a great mom who loves them and she didn’t ask for me; the girls didn’t ask for me; but yet here I am. I talk to many parents, those who have children and are step-parents too-sharing how challenging being a step can sometimes be.

How to navigate…for me, I do my best to put these sweet souls first, try not to take anything personally, to be understanding, respectful & supportive.  But most of all, I’m grateful that they are in my life and I hold their precious hearts in my heart.

Happy Mother’s Day.
