Founder's Welcome to SMOMS.org
Hi and Welcome!

If you've found our site chances are good that you're either new to being in the role of stepmom (married or not doesn't matter to us here) or you're under tremendous emotional pressure and can use some support asap!

Whatever brings you here, you're very welcome.
Included on the Open Forums are many articles and "Lessons Learned" from 65 (last count) sister stepmoms who've gone before you and learned things the hard way. All the materials are intended to support you and give you insights to help you understand whatever may be going on in your world.

While the women here come from many cultures, religions, backgrounds and even different countries, last check it was about 35% outside of USA, we share emotional experiences that somehow WE can totally share, relate to, support and have empathy for. It's a wonderful sisterhood and all that's good, right and true about women helping women.

Even husbands, boyfriends, partners and family members feel relief that we've found each other. While many significant others were hesitant at first, fearing that we were going to help you build a case against them, etc, it won't take long for them to encourage you to you "go to SMOMS.org" as they see how you're feeling better and better from the support you're getting from (AND giving to) each other! Watch and see!

After 14 years of having this bulletin board FREE for everyone to read, I've just decided to create 2 different types of membership. In addition to the materials that is free to all guests of the site, there is a series of forums (some archived and some live) for Reading Members to read. This membership is Free and to register, all you need is an email and an anonymous username. I manually activate new women once or twice a week so you shouldn't have to wait too long.(doing this because of the international spammers)

The second form of membership is now a fee-based set of boards and services. You can see them explained in detail on the home page under "Become a Member."

In addition to the forums we also have a private email function which gives you the ability to communicate with other SMOMS privately and still maintain your privacy.

Please read about our BB Kindness guidelines, on the home page, under "About us."

Along with the 17+ forums for participating Members, there are several podcasts of articles and conference calls available to Participating Members. No real names are used to keep your privacy intact.

These first 14 years have been a real adventure of learning, sharing and growing with an amazing, ever-changing group of stepmoms. The next 14, 24, 34? years is about sharing all that we've learned with stepmoms who want to grow, heal , become more wise about themselves and how to stay close with their partners while having to face very real and complex relationship situations.

Welcome to Stepmoms on a Mission!
