Stepfamily Association of America
This national, nonprofit membership organization is dedicated to successful stepfamily living. Stepfamily is the term used for a family in which one or both of the adult partners bring children from a previous relationship. Though this blending of families can bring great joy to all family members, there are at times special problems, which this site seeks to address. This site provides educational information and resources for anyone interested in stepfamilies and their issues. We suggest first visiting Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) or browsing the Site Map.
