I won the best Stepmother prize!
Saralou has been my stepmother since I was 8. I call her mom, which can be very confusing to those who know I lost my mother as a child. I only use the word “step” when I need to differentiate between the two women who raised me. Being a divorced mother with 5 small children was very hard. She was my sounding board and my biggest cheerleader.
Happy Mother’s Day mom!! xoxo
