If you are in a stepfamily for the first time you probably realize you were not prepared for what you are experiencing. You are not alone. Almost half the couples that marry today involve at least one spouse who is marrying for a second or subsequent time. The stepfamily we're referring to is one where there are children involved. It doesn't matter how old the children are. It's still a stepfamily. You are not a biological family. The dynamics you face are complex. You need to understand what's going on and how to better handle these relationships.
We have been in a stepfamily for over twenty years. Our five children are now grown and have their own families. We did not have this unique support when we were raising our family and needed it desperately. By God's grace we made it through. There are many things we would have been able to avoid had we known. Through experience and connection with other stepfamily ministries we are able to help others who are struggling in this area. Please let us know if we can help you.
