“There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.”
― C. JoyBell C.
This was of great inspiration for me today. Family is family and is not predetermined by traditional roles. It is becoming more of the norm to have blended families, single-family households, same gender parents, step-fathers and step-mothers, non-biological parents , inter-racial and inter-faith families, half-brothers, half-sisters, adopted siblings and everything else under the sun. As long as there is love and support for one another, the ties established is a “Family Bond”
Give hugs and kisses to your family members, cherish each other and don’t dwell on how the family was established but the closeness that is shared between each other. Family is Family!
