A Blended Thanksgiving

Many of you know that in addition to being an instant mom, I’m also a part of my own blended family. My parents have been divorced for 15 years and I have two sets of parents. I have step siblings and the whole bit but I try to remove the word step from it all.

My parents divorce was messy and hard. My childhood was tarnished by the drama of it all. But something wonderful has happened in the last couple of years.

The drama is gone and left behind is some peace and friendliness between the two sides of my family.

This Thanksgiving, we were able to celebrate with all four of my parents under the same roof!! How amazing is that? It was truly wonderful and made me and my husband hope that someday the same could be possible for our kids.

This is a picture of me and my Moms. One has the word bio in front of mom and the other has step but I don’t see that. I call them both Mom and love them both the same.
