I’m proud to belong to two incredible stepparents who each call me daughter.
I imagine it must have been difficult for my stepparents to walk the hopeful tightrope into my life as part parent and part friend, but fortunately my story is a happy one. My stepmom and stepdad are two of the most important people in my life. Not only have they both made positive differences in the lives of my biological parents, they’ve made countless positive changes in my life as well.
In honor of National Stepfamily Day this September 16th, I reached out to readers for their thoughts on the very best things about being part of a blended family.
