It’s that time again! The winner of March’s Step-Mom of the month is… Lindsey!
My bet is that Lindsey’s story is not unique. Not only did she find the love of her life, but a three year old little girl with big beautiful brown eyes and a soft little voice would find a special place in her heart as well.
From the beginning she built a relationship with “D” by focusing on her every day. She remembers carrying her everywhere until she was too big! Participating in the fun stuff, like making slime, to getting more serious, like asking her about her day and truly taking the time to engage and form a relationship was very important to Lindsey.
Lindsey and her partner ended up having a little baby together and have since re-located to another city where Lindsey works as a Naturopathic doctor. But this didn’t mean she had to lose her connection with D. Between a full life of work, exercise, and running after her toddler, Lindsey now uses text and Facetime regularly to maintain their connection. Sending virtual hugs and love still goes a long way even if they cannot see one another as often.
