Lori McCarthy and I talk about blended families. The two of us are part of the same blended family: Lori is married to my daughter’s father. We get along so well that people are often shocked when they discover how we know each other.

We discovered early on how much better life is when we put emotions aside and learn to get along for the sake of the children we love. When you become part of a blended family, you have no choice but to go “all in”.
