Life doesn't always turn out as we planned. The same is true for marriage. April and Loren Kirk, the hosts of Co-Parenting Past Chaos, take you on a journey through marriage, divorce, and co-parenting. Listen as April and Loren discuss the trials, tribulations, and triumphs they encounter while attempting to build a positive relationship and productive communication during a bitter custody battle. These two courageous women share one very common bond – the same husband. April is the wife of Loren’s ex-husband; together they co-parent six children. The best part is, they are all neighbors. Together they want to build a community of blended families that focus on putting the children’s needs above their own. Parenting presents its own challenges, add in three husbands, three wives, a few girlfriends, some boyfriends, an army of children, and a grandchild – you have yourself a real-life blended family. Unfortunately, divorce happens, but it does not have to place lasting and damaging effects on the children. Co-Parenting Past Chaos was created in hopes of shedding light on positive co-parenting and advocating for better communication for the parents of children in broken homes. April and Loren hope you will join them on this adventure of proving that blended is better! Co-Parenting Past Chaos is a weekly podcast that is available wherever you prefer to listen.
