I AM SARAH PATERSON
I’m a mother, stepmother, programmer by trade, fashion lover by night, and obsessed with helping stepmoms avoid unwanted and unnecessary chaos.
I have two children with my husband who had five kids from two different moms when we first got together. In the beginning of my stepmom journey, I had zero clue on what to do other than having those innate maternal instincts (which I second-guessed). They certainly helped, but didn’t fully prepare me for what was to come. It was an isolating and solitary experience, and even though I received a lot of help and support along the way, I struggled to find my place. From these challenging and lonely experiences, I created Social Stepmom – a community to help each other along our journey of stepmotherhood.
It’s my passion to support other women to thrive and live their best life as a stepmom, while taking a stand for important issues including children’s rights and parental alienation. We don’t have to walk this journey alone anymore.
