Raising a Blended Family from a Working Mom of 11

Representative Marjorie Margolies had a busy career as a journalist, author, Congressional Representative, professor, and founder of Women’s Campaign International all while raising a blended family of 11 kids by adoption, birth, sponsorship, and marriage. She is the author of a new memoir And How Are the Children.

In this episode, we cover:

  • How did each of your children join your family?
  • How did you “blend” children that came to you in different ways, with different backgrounds, and different ages?
  • What were the biggest challenges?
  • Did some of your children struggled? How much do you think the way they came to your family impacted their struggles?
  • What did you learn along the way?
