Blended Family Moms

Blended families are still families! As the mother of a blended family I am sometimes told that we aren't a real family. Then I pose the question, "What are we?". The answer, we are a family... we stick together and make it work...the only difference is we don't all share DNA... we do however, have issues that are special to us! I wanted to start a community where other mothers of blended families can share useful infomation and ask questions of other mothers of bleded families... I LOVE MY BLENDED FAMILY.
