Dear Dr. Laura,
I am a 30 year listener and my wife, four sons, and I are better people because of you.
Almost daily, I hear you struggle to reference the children who are produced when a family attempts to "blend". I had a conversation with a young lady several years ago who was an original daughter of a divorced dad. She referred to her new half-siblings as her dad's "replacement kids". I think the term fits perfectly.
My youngest son asked me recently "What are you going to do if Dr. Laura dies?" I said, "She won't."
Thank you for all the years of wisdom.
Sincerely, your loyal subject
