Ron Deal, our correspondent to the blended family, returns with help for a group that is growing in number. What is the role of a grandparent in the lives of stepgrandchildren? Nearly 40% of families in the U.S. have a stepgrandparent, but very little has been done to help clarify the role and give help. Come with your questions, your struggles, or stories of success to Monday's Chris Fabry Live.
