Are you a woman who is living with children who are not your own? Are you tired, unappreciated, alone and sometimes resentful that you gave up your former life for this? Did you realize how long it would take upset, angry children to adjust? Is this what you expected when you fell in love? This text discusses a range of issues that arise in blended families. It confirms that step-parenting can be a tough and lonely journey and validates the hurdles of false expectations, disappointment, grief, and the feelings of failure, resentment and rejection that are often encountered along its path. Whilst validating, reassuring and encouraging, this title challenges its readers to allow their difficulties to become the catalyst for personal empowerment and growth.
