Dating a divorce with child
Here is Scott’s guest post that gives us a glance at the transition from single guy to married guy with step kids, and all the wonderful things that can happen if you are open-minded, have insight into what the kids are going through, and just give it time.

As with anything new, practice is needed or in this case just feeling comfortable with this new situation.
