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? You bet, but in the end, it is about a great relationship. And she knows the truth - there is no hiding that Karma.  PK had Alzheimer's and he said that I was the only one who truly cared. He knew and that is what makes the difference. Letting someone know that...

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. More time with him than his children, which was sad.  They loved him but life went on for them. I went up every other weekend to help with him and we loved each other.

Only “Steps” are at the Front Door

I love my daughter, and now I’m in love with my beautiful grandson. They are my daughter and grandson because I refuse to refer to them as “step” people.  The only “steps” in our house are at the front door.  But the fact of the matter is, there are times when a need for an explanation of our families situation exists, and the idea that I have admit to this “step” situation has always hurt me. That’s why I was elated to learn...
