The rate of divorce is high among families affected by disability. But what happens when parents of children with special needs remarry and blend into a new family? Listen as host Vangie Rodenbeck interviews her husband Jason and they discuss their ideas on managing the challenges of step-parenting a child with different abilities, blended children from different families and honoring God in the process.
Jason and Vangie Rodenbeck live in Cumming, GA. They brought together 3 children from each of their previous marriages. Vangie son, Noah, lives with an autism spectrum disorder.
Raising a blended family comes with its share of hurdles. In the United States, approximately one-third of all households are blended. With patience and a optimistic outlook, the blended family can be one filled with affection, respect, and appreciation.
It isn’t easy for the children when parents remarry. They are trapped in the middle of a situation that can cause immediate feelings of frustration and sadness.
It can be particularly hard to find the right balance when you’re a stepparent. Many adults try to blend their families with high expectations. Many think it will be similar to their previous marriage in terms of time spent with their spouse and the attentiveness they’ll be able to give the relationship. Unfortunately, this may not match your reality.
Every family has a different dynamic. The trick to making a blended family work is finding a new, combined dynamic that includes time spent together, discipline, and rules BOTH parties can live with.
Let’s look at 7 tips for creating a great blended family.

In a time where many families consist of husbands, wives and children from previous relationships, the "Brady Bunch" image of a blended family, often eludes us. Old habits, outside influences, mistakes from the past and the "Yours, Mine and Ours" syndrome often make parenting difficult to manage. These can even lead to division within the marriage. Is there a way to bring balance within the Blended Family?

Although statistics in the United States are difficult to come by, because the U.S. Census Bureau has discontinued providing estimates of marriage, divorce, and remarriage except for those that are available from earlier censuses, it is believed that of the 60 million American children under the age of 13, half are currently living with one biological parent and that parent's current partner. Today's show will discuss blended families and the issues that may arise.
