Why is it so hard to write or say what you are about? As much as I can anticipate the question, I am never quite ready to answer it!
My pseudo name is Xara Lee. I’m a married, African-American, stay-at-home mother. I have 1 or 4 children (depending on how you look at it). My husband is an ordained minister. He had two children by two different women before we were married. We welcomed another child from one of their mothers two days after we were married. We married in 2002 and had our first in-house child, Jazmine, in 2009. There. That’s me in a nutshell as far as the scope of the purpose of the blog is concerned. I’m sure more of me will come out in future posts.
There are are many challenges that women face in a “blended”* family but even more so when you are a Christian woman actively seeking to walk with God daily. It can be very difficult to find a person who understands your feelings and acknowledges your concerns, but helps you to mature in Christ in your Bonus Mom journey. There are many tempting worldly “solutions” to the drama in the life of a Bonus Mom but we must not grab hold to anything other than Christ and His solutions for us.
This blog is a place to ask questions, get suggestions, and hear Biblical truths for you Bonus Mom. Go with God!
*I say “blended” because I view the word as meaning both the husband and the wife enter into marriage with children. In my case, only my husband had children.
