A blended family or stepfamily forms when you and your partner make a life together with the children from one or both of your previous relationships.

It may include full parents, children, and siblings as well as step-siblings, half-siblings, step-children, and step-parents.

Blended families are unique in that they require each member to be flexible and open-minded, as they work to build a new family dynamic together.

Despite the challenges, many families find that blending their families brings them closer together, and creates new bonds that are strong and lasting.

The process of forming a new, blended family can be both a rewarding and challenging experience. Some people also include adoption and fostering as blended family situations, although others do not consider this a blended family.

To cherish my family, and say “I love you” often. To laugh until my belly hurts, with friends who’ll still be there when I cry. To discover my passions and focus my life on those things. To have faith that this good life is only the precursor.”
  50. “A Second Dad: Even though you’re not my dad I know that you’ll be there with the little things you do you let me know you care. You’re always there to help, whatever the need may be you’ve given of yourself…and so unselfishly. Now you’re becoming the dad that I have never known I’m drawn to you more every day for the kindness you have shown. I just want to thank you and let you know I care a second dad as great as you is something very rare.”
