Local support stepmom groups???
I am desperate to meet local stepmoms in my area but I only find online support groups. Any support groups I can attend to make friends around the LA area?? zipcode 90004? Thank You, SMOM in LA
Hi there SMOM in LA,
Over the years, I tried to start remote SMOMS groups but was unable to get enough local SMOM support to keep a groups going. Maybe one day, we’ll have chapters all over the country (wouldn’t that be super?!). However, this is another option...
When we didn’t have organized meetings, many sister SMOMS have met each other by posting something like you just wrote, on the Bulletin board and anyone in the area can PM (Private Email) the author of the post, to set up a face to face meeting. Be smart, set up a meeting in a coffee house or restaurant so you can be safe and get to know some local, sister SMOMS.
So far, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with sister SMOMS in NY, NJ, CT, VA, WA, KS, PA, DE and everyone has been wonderful. What a joy to meet someone after writing each other for so long. It’s like meeting a penpal. I hope anyone interested in meeting local SMOMS will feel free to post something, like your town or zip code and see if anyone else lives near you.
If you wish, please repost your request on the BB, using your screen name so people can contact you via reply or private email.
All the Best, Cathryn
