img_20161112_112833This is me, Melissa, PNW native, lightworker, introvert, soul searcher. While I have officially been a stepmom since 2011, my tour of duty began in 2007. I have seen and done it all throughout our journey with my stepkiddos: supervised visits, every other weekend, long distance (WA to WY), and custodial stepmom.

As you can imagine from that rap sheet, my stepmom journey has been tumultuous. Somewhere along the way I realized I had a choice. Did I want my life to be a constant tragedy or did I want to rise above and make it my own?

This site is all about me making it my own and empowering each of you to do the same. You are full of too much light to let anything outshine your beautiful soul.
