National Step Family Day is celebrated each year on September 16th. Christy Bogeld is the founder of this special day that celebrates all step families. More than 50 % of all Americans or one in every three Americans is part of a step family. Step families are also commonly refereed to as a blended family.
This past June on the 11th day my son officially became part of a step family. He married his high school friend and together they are sharing her son. It seems that he went to work and college and she took a different turn and got married to a man who left the relationship after the baby was born. This did not deter my son as the little man became as much of his son in time as it is hers.
So here's to all the great step families out there.
