What a welcoming you all have given us! We would like to say a huge thank you for the overwhelming response we have had to the launch of stepmotherlove. We really hope it’s helping you all feel more supported and connected.
We have received humbling amounts of visitors to the site and a number of people writing in telling us about their stories and sharing their feedback.
After reading through them we would like to share a few of our favourite parts (no names and published with permission of course – we value your anonymity!).
“Great idea starting this page. There are a few in the UK and US but not many down under.”
“I agree with everything you say about being positive as the energy that negativity takes up is incredibly draining/tiring.”
“[I hold] positions where problem solving is a daily prerequisite for being successful in the workplace. AND YET... I feel like I have no problem solving skills left in my role as a Stepmum.”
“At the [start], we looked for advice without trying to over complicate the situation. We have a very happy and contented blended famil,y however there are often doubts for all the parents from time to time.”
It is so lovely to see readers connecting with what we are doing, and we hope to bring you more in the coming months.
If you haven’t written to us, please do, we love hearing from you!
