Author Shawn Siimon thought being a stepmom would be easy until her stepdaughter spit on her dog. Then, she decided to make it her mission to meet other stepmoms and hear their stories. Once she did, she felt supported and no longer alone. Sharing those stories became a stepmom support group in writing.
This collection of stories from stepmoms contains tales of inspiration, triumph, tribulations, and joys of being a stepmom.
