I am a true believer that grief plays an ongoing and critical role in our stepfamilies. Did you ever feel as if the children just won’t come around? Why are these adult children so mean to me? Why doesn’t the ex-spouse or the children like me? These are the times that call for stepmom help.
I wonder if grief is the answer to some of these questions. There is so much loss! The loss of the family dreams: a marriage that failed, a family split and worries about the future of the children. It is a death.
Can we truly expect our family members to like and love us when their worlds have been shattered? Does time really heal? How can we serve our families? Who can provide stepmom help?
