    I also grew up in a “blended” family – except I didn’t know I was in one! My oldest brother was my father’s child from a previous marriage that ended in divorce. We didn’t use the word “half-brother” or “step-son.” There were just three brothers and two sisters, five children of our parents. Of course, our parents told us – so we wouldn’t hear from strangers – but that was it. My oldest brother’s biological mother was not in the picture – so it wasn’t obvious to outsiders. Blended families have been the norm in the world for generations – think of all the women who died in childbirth, and the husbands who remarried and had children from two different wives. I don’t discount the challenges, but many stories are happy ones. TFS.
