Unlike biological parents, who age and grow alongside their children, stepparents choose to join an already established family. Blended families typically face a variety of challenges while attempting to dwell under the same roof. A stepparent-stepchild connection might take years to develop, but it may grow as strong as the tie with an actual parent, or even more.
