StepMother’s Day – This is a day for those stepmoms out there. #StepMothersDay
This day for Stepmoms is held the Sunday after Mother’s Day.

A stepmother or stepmom is a woman who is the wife of one’s father after the divorce or separation of one’s parents or the death of one’s mother.Dictionary
In 2000, the day was created by Lizzie Capuzzi, a nine-year-old from Pennsylvania who wanted to celebrate her stepmother, Joyce. She decided it should be celebrated the Sunday after Mother’s Day, and Joyce and Lizzie let Senator Rick Santorum know about the day by sending him a letter. On July 11, 2000, Santorum spoke on the Senate floor, supporting stepparents, acknowledging the day, and that Lizzie created it. This was published in the Congressional Record.CheckIDay
