In this practical and supportive book, Judy Ford and Anna Chase offer a helping hand and show how to transform a seemingly untenable arrangement into a relationship filled with love: "The labels "mother, father, stepmother, stepfather" matter less than the quality of our interactions with the young ones entrusted to our care. We stepparents have been given a precious opportunity to offer our love, trust, respect, and acceptance to the young souls who have entered our lives."
