In this last show for my Mother’s Day Special Series, the topic is going to be: “Blended Family – Unconditional Love – If there is a will, there is a way.” What is a blended family? A blended family is when two adults marry or live together, and one or both adults bring children from a previous relationship into the new marriage or living arrangement. They “blend” the two families into one new family. Regardless of how much abundance of love that is in this new family, ultimately there will always be times and situations that would require just a little bit more love and understanding from everyone to ensure the survival and success of this new union. Joining me to talk about this wonderful, challenging, and rewarding experience is Shirley Cress Dudley; a Licensed Professional Counselor from Charlotte, North Carolina. Shirley has two masters’ degrees; one in marriage and family counseling, and the other in education. She is also a part of a blended family herself, and is raising 2 children and 3 stepchildren with her husband Eric. In my book From My Mama’s Kitchen – “food for the soul, recipes for living” I talked about the unconditional love I received from my adopted mom in Malaysia and from eight other women in the United States whom I refer to as my other moms. However, in order for us to truly experience and appreciate this kind of love, we on the receiving end must consciously allow ourselves to be loved. Please join Shirley and me for a first-hand look into the making of a successful blended family, as we discuss the various opportunities and solutions available to creating a happy and successful blended family.
