Kim and Mike have helped me so much with being a stepparent. So many times I’ve been listening and thought “Yes that happens to me/us too”. They have helped me to understand the dynamics of being a stranded stranger and how to work with and help my wife who feels like the trapped teammate sometimes. I was feeling so alone as a stepparent and they’ve helped me understand that my feelings are very common. I now understand that we dont have to live as a Disney family. Lots of pressure has been taken off me so I can now trust the bio mum to make decisions. This podcast has been a lifesaver for me. Thanks so much Kim and Mike.
