Left Out of the Family Portrait

with Ron Deal | October 3, 2018

Steve and Joanne married and blended a family of five kids. When they bought a home, Joanne included some pictures of her stepdaughter's deceased mother when she decorated. But Joanne didn't get equal consideration from her stepdaughter, Mary, when she was decorating her apartment. Ouch. Why is Joanne hurt? Because she wants her blended family to blend. But to her credit, she's also patient with her stepdaughter because she knows becoming family, sometimes, is harder for some than others.
