I read your article yesterday and I had to write. I had love, joy and honor with PK.  His daughter, who I met 23 years before, treated me like a newcomer, the day he died. Hurt?

This concept of family inclusion is so necessary that I want to share my experience. I spent 49 years in a close relationship with my stepdad.

I acknowledge this and she says..

Can Para-kin terms offer an alternative to Step-family terms?  When we hear “Step” … our mind wanders into the world of Cinderella. As a family court attorney, I know that our clients are often in situations of blended families. They are parents with stepchildren and for many step families, these words work. Others though, regardless of their love, shy away from the word “step.” Why? Although this may be without merit, our...
