  • "My stepdaughter of 30 years hurt my feelings again. It was minor, but I thought, 'When is this ever going to change?' I know no family is perfect, but I still think this will get better. It just doesn't feel like we're family." I know it's frustrating that it's not your definition of what family should be, but it's family. If it helps, I hear a lot of biological moms feel the same way-"My kids don't need me anymore." "My son never calls." I think maybe you're more "family" than you realize.

Ron: Hey, sounds like family to me.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: “Ron, my stepdaughter of 30 years hurt my feelings again the other day. It was minor, but I thought, ‘After all this time, when is this ever going to change?’ I know no family is perfect, but I still think one day she will finally think more of me and this will get better. It just doesn’t feel like we’re family.”

Yes, I know this is frustrating. But, I do think this is family—it’s not your definition of what family should be, but it’s family. If it helps, I hear a lot of biological moms who feel the same way—“My kids don’t need me anymore.” “My son never calls.” You know what? I think maybe you’re more “family” than you realize. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
