Welcome Tracy, I am Chantelle, one of the co-hosts here on Blended Families. I am a step & bio mom. I have a son from a previous relationship, my DH has a son from his previous marriage & my DH & I have 2 sons together. My ex is expecting twins in Feb., you could say that we're going to be a very "messed up Brady Bunch", lol... I have it on all angels. If I haven't experienced it, I will.

Glad you came to the board. I frequent other forums on JM too. This is a great board, not as active as some of the others. This is a more "serious" issues board. Which can be hard sometimes. We've been trying to make things light lately but still, talking about "ex's" & step families, it's hard & difficult, no matter how you slice it. It's a complex issue & no issue is ever exactly the same.

What's great about this board is that we've all BTDT, we all have something to add & help. We can all relate on some level & you are not alone. It's great to know that. Sometimes you feel so frustrated being in these situations & its' hard to talk to friends or family, they hear it enough or you feel like you've discussed it enough. Here, we're here for you, no matter how many times or how many issues you want to revisit.

Everyone here is fantastic. A great bunch of ladies who truly care for one another.

I am glad you finally came over. I am sure it will take some time to "trust" or feel like you can share but in time you'll get there. Give it a chance & we'll be here for you.

Glad to have you join us! I didn't get to welcome you before because I had issues with my screen name but I am here now and wanted to welcome you to Blended families. I'm Dani. I have 3 kids of my own and DH has 4 from his prev marriage. they range in ages from 11 to 25. I think you will find the women here are incredibly helpful and it's a good place to vent when you need to or seek advice. Most of us have BTDT as far as the usual issues that come with blended families and can usually give some pretty good advice...or at least understand and sympathize!
