That First Step's a Doozy: Parenting from a Stepparent Perspective
Schwier, Karin Melberg
Exceptional Parent, v39 n12 p20-21 Dec 2009
Sometimes one's life unfolds in mysterious ways when one is not even trying. The author thinks becoming a stepparent is like that, or at least it was for her. The author had not even really set out to have children, but one day she was standing with one foot in the air at the edge of jumping into a new, pre-made family with three children, one of whom had Down syndrome. In this article, the author shares her experience of parenting from a stepparent perspective.
