Is blending tougher than you thought?

My name is Adele Cornish and I know from my personal experience in a stepfamily (nineteen years to be exact), the challenges you face each day.  I also know just how difficult it is to find good practical answers to these problems. Equipped with my social work background and a vision to help you succeed, I have devoted years to extensively researching and addressing the unique issues step families wrestle with.

I’ve used this knowledge and my experience to develop a program and resources that have benefited thousands of couples worldwide, equipping them to overcome the common obstacles to blended family success.  I also offer free regular email tips with skills and strategies to enable your blended family to succeed.

Here’s an example of how my free regular tips can help you:

“This has been an incredible resource for me. Thank you so much for helping me save my marriage. You probably underestimate the magnitude of your positive impact on such an enormously complicated issue. I don’t think I would have been able to do this on my own.” Regards, Catherine, USA

You can discover how to become a success statistic!

Statistics tell us that well over 60% of blended families fail, most within the first few years. Blended families often find themselves thrust into destructive and high levels of conflict. When two families combine most experience headache and heartache because they have never been given the skills and strategies they need to make their blended family work. Blended families have a unique set of dynamics. I understand these dynamics and want to give you advice that is specific to your family’s struggles.

“My wife and I enjoy your emails and discuss the topics. We are both in a second marriage and have 5 children between us . My wife & I have taken a lot from your information and I personally have taken a lot on board. Thank you.  Paul Mckay, Victoria
