A survey of American families states that 42% of adults have at least one step-relative, 30% have a step-sibling, and 13% have at least one stepchild.
Most families treat their stepchildren as part of their own, but unfortunately, some don’t.
One mother and Twitter user (who will remain anonymous) posted a request on the Facebook group “Photoshop Fairy Connection,” a group that helps its members with photoshopping requests. She wanted her stepson removed from their family photo and was willing to pay $10.
Another Twitter user reposted the screenshots and got an overwhelming response, mostly on the negative side. It got 5.6k retweets, 6.1k quote tweets, and 36.8 likes.
