Kaleigh, a teenager, posted online about the pros and cons of growing up in a blended family. The cons, according to her; watching one parent be saddened by the other, packing up her belongings and switching houses every week, losing some of her parent's attention to new family members. The pros; having two homes support her and having a variety of siblings and relationships that brings new love into her life. Stepfamilies, like all families, have pros and cons that need God's love and guidance.
