I'm Gerardo Campbell a stepfather veteran of 16+ years. In 1995, when I married the "Pretty Lady" and I became the stepfather to her two children ages 10 and 14 at the time. Back in 1995, there was little, if any, resources, information or coaching available for stepfathers. I became a stepfather equipped with the very best intentions combined with my own perceptions, expectations and very little outside preparation. Considering the mountains we faced over the years it's only through God's grace we didn't end up another divorce statistic. I believe I have an understanding why the divorce rate is nearly 70% for blended families. My mission is to turn this tragic statistic around. Through this website I want to share with you my experience, my lessons learned and the lessons learned from others. It is possible to be a successful stepparent.

I am a Nebraska native who now calls Silicon Valley home. The Pretty Lady and I have an 12 year old son Nathaniel.
