A Tradition Torn: Family or Fiasco? 😲

A poignant tale of a mother's legacy, a stepfamily's longing for inclusion, and a woman's struggle to honor her mother's memory. As she prepares to welcome her first child, she finds herself in the eye of a family storm. Her decision to continue her late mother's memory book tradition for her son has stirred up emotions and sparked a debate within her blended family. Her stepmother feels overlooked, her stepsiblings feel left out, and her father is caught between understanding her perspective and feeling the sting of her exclusion. As this family navigates the choppy waters of tradition and inclusion, one question remains: Is she right in preserving the tradition solely for her biological family, or should she have extended it to her stepfamily? Let's see what the internet has to say about this... 🌐
