Blended Families | Mom Minute

We often are asked about our older childrens’ reaction when we adopted trans-racially, and I equate it similarly to the preparation and treatment when families are blended {through marriage, with or without kids}.

Anytime you introduce a new dynamic into a family, being a new person or persons, it definitely takes an adjustment of cultures on both parties.

I firmly believe that “family” is the single-most important social unit in the world, and that it begins with the couple and extends out to the children.

In today’s episode of Mom Minute, I talk about how I prepared my girls for the adoption of my son and daughter, and how by doing so… their hearts were open to him in every way.

The same formula will work in blended families, when we understand that our individuality is what makes us beautiful, and that a step-sibling can be just as much a sister or brother as those related to us blood.
