Eliza's Intro

Howdy ya'll, I know I'm late on my intro and I'm very sorry about that, but I did a lot of reading in the meantime and have lots to talk about. First off, no I'm not a divorcee or have stepchildren, but before ya'll start running away I grew up with the whole blended family bit.

My parents divorced by the time I hit 8-years-old and I lived with my mom for a while. My dad ended up with custody of us (good thing) and got married to my mom (stepmom) by the time I was 10. (can't recall exactly) My step-mom (I call mom) already had a daughter, who was 11 months younger than myself, my dad had two children (myself and brother) as well. Before I reached 13 my biological mother would have two more children, both girls.

I learned all about what it meant to go from a family, to custody batttles, to a new family and all the ins and outs that go with that. Today, my sister (stepsister) and I are very close. For myself, I've been married for 11 years and have four children. As you can see I do have a little to contribute and can't wait to contribute.

How about you? Are you from a blended family, past or present?

I just wanna say “Blended families don’t fail, remarriages do.
