#1 Family isn’t always about the people in your life who are blood relations. It’s about the people in your life who want you to be in theirs. It’s about the people in your life who accept you for who you are, support you in the things you choose to do and no matter what, are there for you.
It’s the people in your life who love you, respect you and who you can depend on. Now that’s Family.
