Hope your planning is going well. Seeing blending as a deliberate process instead of something that "just happens" is a great first step!

Thanks, cm. We have indeed been very deliberate in the steps we've taken with regard to the kids. Knowing that our children are priorities in our lives is one of the things that attracted us to each other in the first place. This will be a second marriage for both of us and we both want it to work for all our sakes. We're old enough to know that you have to work at these things and it's wonderful to be with someone who is willing to work together and who shares my views on kids, family, and being partners in the process of life. I'm very thankful that we have such a solid start.

We have four children between the two of us ... my son is 17, my two daughters are 14 & 8, and his son is 5 years old. My children really like their future stepdad and are very happy about our upcoming marriage. His son seems to have accepted me and wants me to help take care of him. The kids get along well but, being realistic, things will not always go smoothly. We're not all living under the same roof yet! ;-)

Well, there's lots more to share and I will do so over time. Looking forward to hearing more from others.
