Mother’s Day from the Other Side of Parenting | Part 3, Step Families

This is a great subject for me. Now, I will acknowledge that other moms don’t have a great relationship with their step kids or maybe the problem resides with THE OTHER MOM and her family making sure you don’t have a healthy relationship with the kids. There are so many facets of step parenthood.

But for me it was another chance for not just parenting, but changing my self image that I allowed to look like a train wreck. Shame on me for that, deserved or not. We cannot be a better parent if we continue to remind ourselves we were bad parents or non parents in the past. God has a way of renewal for us that we sometimes mistake for more of the same.

Since being a step parent, I still cannot get past my grief of my past parenting, but now I have that amazing chance to be the parent I always wanted to be to my own kids and my step kids. Who knew I was worthy enough of being a mentor and friend to people I did not give birth to? How is that even possible? Truly, it is a God thing. God can heal ANYTHING.

Let me be clear: I KNOW I am the lucky one, blessed beyond measure to be in a family that celebrates my love and knowledge. I am trusted, I am loved without strings.

Step parenting can be truly beautiful. These great kids adopted me. This should be the way of life of every step family.

Happy Mother’s Day!
