Not all marriages last forever, but despite marital changes, familial relationships are perpetual. This book reinforces the idea that children of divorce are still greatly loved, even if the love stops between partners. The book includes personal stories and letters from children who had to adjust to living in two homes and missing holidays with one parent in order to be with the other. Readers are also braced for the fact that parents may find new partners. These changes are positioned as opportunities for life to get better, never worse.
