I have read to your comments, tweets, and emails. There are so many of you who are looking to find the tools to begin to effectively blend your families, and while my upcoming book will discuss the tools I found necessary for healing, I want to be able to provide some guidance in real time to an interested follower.
Dr. Shefali is one of the most renowned physicians in the space. As the author of the The Conscious Parent: Transforming Ourselves, Empowering Our Children, her words and philosophy on families has helped me on my journey to healing and I want to be able to provide the same to a deserving blender. I will be providing a ticket to the winner to accompany me for a full weekend of healing at Dr. Shefali’s Evolve 2016 conference.

A little more about Blended Families:
The socially defined segment of “family” has transformed into a state of hyphenated newness. Once dominated with traditional nuclear definition of mother, father, and the 2.4 children that pair produced, the word “Family” and its functionality has taken on a new definition. Divorce is common. Gay and lesbian parents can adopt or conceive biological children of their own thanks to egg donation and surrogacy. And the possibilities for new types of family continue to grow.
In recent years, research suggests that in the United States blended families have become the predominant family configuration. Data collected by Pew Social Trends, shows one of three Americans is now a step-parent, stepchild, step-sibling or other member of a blended family. It has also been reported that in the United States each day approximately 2,100 blended families are formed. The staggering numbers of first time marriages that end in divorce, cohabiting couples, and the high percentage of remarriages that involve children suggest that this alternative life affirming approach to processing the demise and rebirth of a family unit with children in the 21st century.
