When I was a little girl, stories like Cinderella and and Snow White gave me the impression, that step families were the epitome of evil. Years later, in graduate school, I met several people who had the most loving step families. This story is a celebration of step parents, step children and step siblings who share a strong and loving familial bond.
This story was my entry to the Women's Web Muse of the Month contest with the prompt Not A Cinderella and I am happy to say it won! Hope you enjoy reading it here.
