Three years ago, Gina Watsons life changed in a big way: She moved from the Netherlands to Canada to be with her then-boyfriend Matthew and his two young sons.Not only did I learn to live a new life in Canada and adjust to the cultural shock, I also became an instant stepmom, she told The Huffington Post.A few years later, I am proud of being able to watch my stepsons grow into respectful, hard working young pre-teens.Below, Watson, the creator of the blog.How To Stepmom, tells us more about her journey as a stepmom.Please introduce us to your family.
There are four of us: Me, my husband Matthew and two boys, Noah (11) and Ben (9 from Matthews previous marriage.We dont have kids of our own.We havent decided whether or not we will.
We have been together since 2011, when I met Matthew, a Canadian, at a local bar in my hometown of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.By 2013, I was boarding a plane with my working holiday visa in hand to live with Matthew and the kids.We got married that same year and I applied for my permanent residency which I received this year!What have been some of the biggest challenges youve faced as a new stepmom?
