For me, it doesn't matter whether you planned to be a mom or not. What is important is that you know you're responsibility and you do it all.


I love this post -- both for how beautifully it's written and the important message. When people hear I have a stepdaughter, they always assume it's some contentious arrangement with everyone bitter or angry at each other. Instead, we sound a lot like your "perfect family": regular calls, visits, meals together and normal, sane interactions among adults who share a deep love for the same young lady. Why is that so hard for people to understand?

As a single dad with full custody of my kids, we are also 'unconventional'. But our family works just fine for us.

Thanks for the great post!

This post has so many important lessons for everyone. Perfect families come in many different variations. As long as everyone feel genuinely loved and respected it's all good.
