Thank Goodness for Step-Parents- Three Cheers for All

Step-parents seem to get bad raps in life as well as in fiction – the most notable is the wicked stepmother in Cinderella. Twenty plus years in practice, however, has convinced me that most step-parents are the folks who ” step up” for the kids in their lives. They provide nurturing, security, love, and role model good parenting when a kid’s example in parenting may be lacking. Steps unconditionally accept the child as their own child deserving of the very best that the step has to offer. Kids do great when they know that there is at least one person in their lives who love them unconditionally. Here’s to under appreciated step-parents— three cheers for all you do!

    Just saw an interesting film called, “Oranges and Sunshine,” about 130,000 British children who were sent to Australia as orphans to live and work for the Christian Brothers. These children, given up by their mothers and separated from their home land to be used, virutally, as slaves, are still dealing with their anger and feelings of inadequacy to this day. True story for which there has only recently been an apology from the British government.


  2. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in
    Opera. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
