On Being a Mom and a Stepmom: A Personal Essay at PopSugar

Celebrating the release of Rose House, by Tina Ann Forkner

I am a mom and a stepmom, but my three kids are all out of the house now, either working or in college. Of course, two of them are back for the summer, so my empty nest schedule is about to change for a few months, but it’s okay. It is a welcome change and I’m happy to have them around. I wrote an essay about them at PopSugar Moms.

PopSugar Moms: Dear Step Sons, I Love You More Than You Will Ever Know

I hope you’ll click over and read it. It might give you a different view of stepmoms than you thought, or maybe you already knew. After all, moms are moms. We are different, but on a basic level, I believe we have the same hopes and dreams as all other moms.

  1. beautifully written.

    I think the Brady Bunch made it sound so easy. I know a woman who is struggling. Her stepdaughter is fighting every step of the way (mother is deceased), and the father isn’t helping. Her new marriage may not survive. So sad. It’s good to see stories where a loving blended family was made.
