18 Pics That Show Stepparents’ Everlasting Love Can Be Even Stronger Than Blood Ties

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.

Many people have expressed their unique stepparenting bond on the internet and we, at Bright Side, stumbled upon a few pics that made our hearts overflow with all the positive feelings.

1. “Just trying to be the best stepdad I can to this little girl.”
