A podcast I’ve been looking for

I’ve always wanted to listen to a podcast that talks about blended family, never actually searched for one. Until I hit a rough patch in my life and I felt the urge I should listen to a podcast. I googled for a good podcast and I came across BFP. BEST choice I made! I binge listen and I’ve gain all this new information that I never knew. I’m putting all this information into perspective and seeing things in a different way and all because of BFP. Thank you so much Melissa!

Honest understanding real issues

I stumbled upon this podcast when I was really struggling to adjust and figure out my place in this new guarded family. There is a ton of great suggestions, guidance, and validation. At times I felt crazy and alone, just knowing I wasn’t the only one feeling and going this. The Facebook group also is a great way to connect with others dealing with the same or similar issues.
