18. It’s Exhausting At Times, But It’s Worth It
"Being a stepparent is the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life. It’s so incredibly emotional and the ever-changing dynamic between the two biological parents and two stepparents is exhausting at times, but worth every moment. I’ve been a part of my stepdaughter’s life since she was three months old, so I consider myself blessed in that regard because she’s known me her whole life. Because of that, I think we’ve bypassed some of the challenges that others face when blending their family together at a later stage, but we still have had our share." Kimberly K.
