Family is everything to me; however, I have never defined family by just blood. I feel that your true family are the people in your life (related family, friends, pets) that are the most supportive and love you no matter what you’re going through, but also tell you what you need to hear. I know the people I look at as my true family are my rock, and I don’t know what I would do without them. I am amazingly blessed with the people that currently surround me in life and I can honestly say that they are who I call family.
My parents are not together, but with that has brought me two wonderful step parents. I also have a younger sister, two little brothers, and a few four-legged friends. My family is very big, but unfortunately most of them still live on the west coast; therefore a majority of my life was spent with my mom, sister, and a couple of cats.
