Feeling Alone in Your Blended Family Journey?

Scroll down to content

Have you ever felt alone in your Blended family journey as if no one understands YOUR circumstances? You feel like there is no other family dealing with the same issues YOU are and no one REALLY “gets it”?? Well, you shouldn’t! Take a look at the staggering statistics here. There are between 29-30 million Americans who are step parents!

If you can believe it:

•40% of married couples with children are step couples

•13% of adults are stepparents

•16.5 million men are stepdads

•14 million women are stepmoms

•1/3 of all weddings in the US form stepfamilies.

WOW!!

This article also states that 113.6 million Americans have a step relationship.

For instance: Just myself alone, I have a stepmom, a stepdad, a step grandma, and I am a stepmom. That’s a lot of step relationships for one person, don’t you think?

Someone out there HAS to be able to commiserate with us, right? Yes!

My purpose in sharing this is to let you know that you are not alone!
