Tina Boscha and This I Believe

essayist Tina BoschaEach week, we hear a new This I Believe essay - this time from Tina Boscha. Becoming a stepparent can be a challenge given the sometimes-confusing lines of responsibility and authority. Despite the occasional awkward moments though, she looks forward to being a stepmother to two daughters for the rest for her life. Boscha is a stepmom, wife, writer, and teacher living in Brownsville, Oregon. To keep her sanity during the teenage years, she sews and knits. Last year, Boscha published her first novel, River in the Sea, based on her mother’s teenage years during World War II.
