Enjoying the gift of a family is so easily taken for granted, because - let’s be honest - as loving, heart-warming + essential our relationships with family members are… they also drive us CRAZY! Families are such complex yet simple structures. Every person has a role in the family + contributes to the well-being or dysfunction of the family.
When these roles shift to invite someone new into the family, you can expect chaos! I know! I know! You think I’m being dramatic, but give me a moment to explain. Chaos is inevitable in this situation, because there are so many emotions, fears + expectations tied into blended families.
