Give it Time
Stepfamilies normally do not instantly "gel" overnight - a period of time needs to pass as the various members get used to each other, learn about each other, and grow to love each other. This won´t happen in a month, or six months, or even in a year. Allow each family member to develop their relationships in their own time. The less pressure put on each person, the more easily they will relax and build the relationships.
