Show Notes Chapter Markers

When Betsy Graziani Fasbinder married more than 30 years ago, she committed to more than a husband. She inherited a son, whose mother had died far too young.

Unlike blended families of divorce, Betsy had to navigate her new family's grief and her own desire to be included as a mother. Journaling and writing helped.  Today, that writing is
Filling Her Shoes:  A Memoir of an Inherited Family.

You will learn:

  • Love and loss, grief and gratitude can coexist.
  • Journaling can help not simply to remember events but to facilitate better perspective and responses in the moment.
  • Step-parenting might be better termed step-in parenting, designed to augment rather than replace the first parent.
