Wow, I have a great new site to recommend and it makes me wonder why no one thought of this sooner!
They're written by stepkids, moms, husbands, and of course, stepmoms, and each person has the chance to say things they might not otherwise feel comfortable saying. There are messages of anger and resentment, sadness and regret, but also some startlingly beautiful letters of love and gratitude. Highly recommended.
The site was created by two friends, Jacquelyn Fletcher and Erin Erickson.
Jacquelyn B. Fletcher is a stepmother of three children and mother of one. She is also the author of A Career Girl’s Guide to Becoming a Stepmom (HarperCollins, 2007) and the publisher of the blog www.becomingastepmom.com.
Erin Erickson is a stepmother to two children and writer of The Erin Experiment, a personal blog. She is also the creator of Stepchicks, an online community for stepmothers and soon-to-be stepmothers.
Stop by and check it out. And maybe post a few letters of your own!
