...more than blood ties, thicker than blood and water. My family is a blended one, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I have a stepfather who I consider to be my "Dad", 3 little sisters whom my parents adopted from foster care, In-Laws, a nephew, a niece, and various other relatives that make up my tree. I have learned the true meaning of LOVE and FAMILY through their examples and through everyday living. Now that my husband and I have made the decision to adopt, I couldn't be happier that my child will be welcomed with loving arms into this crazy, mixed-up family of mine!
This is a photo of my nephew and one of my little sisters, taken last year by my mom. It clearly shows the love they have for each other. They are over a year apart, but are the best of friends. They are more like brother and sister, rather than Aunt and nephew. Sometimes they fight, but there are more moments like these in a given day. I'm thankful every day for my family, and hope you all take the time today to appreciate yours. Happy Love Thursday, everyone!!
