I was reading an article from "The Blended Truth". They are a blended family organization founded by Brent and Lucy Howell. They wrote in this piece the difficulties of being in a blended family.
I have been having my own struggles of wanting to quit trying to build a relationship with my oldest bonus daughter.
After reading the Howell's wonderful piece: I could not quit.
Life as a bonus parent is not easy.
My hope is that one day my daughter will see that I love her and would very much enjoy having a realtionship. Until that day, I will keep praying.
