Growing up without my birth dad was a little tough. Though we spoke occasionally, I never understood why he didn't want to be apart of my life. I saw him move on with a new family, and look incredibly happy while doing it. To be honest, it made me feel like I didn't exist to him and made the times that we did speak feel awkward. Because of this, I've always referred to my stepdad as my dad and never thought to look for Father's Day cards for stepdads because I truly do see him as my dad.
Although this is true for me, I have friends who have a great relationship with both their biological dad and their stepdad. In those cases, finding the perfect card for both are a necessity. For some, getting their stepdad a general dad card for Father's Day is OK. Others, however, may like to differentiate between their dad and stepdad, so having a card that separates the two is important. Whatever your reasoning may be, knowing that there are options to choose from will save you a lot of time searching around for them.
