In their practical and supportive book, Judy Ford and Anna Chase offer a helping hand and show how to transform a seemingly impossible situation into a relationship filled with love. "In the end," write the authors,"the labels mother, father, stepmother, stepfather matter less than the quality of our interactions with the young ones entrusted to our care."
