8 Things That Make A Family

Every Fall, my daughters’ school does a beautiful photo gallery featuring every family. It is titled “Love Makes A Family” and displays the diversity in the composition of our school. There are adoptive families, single-parent families, families with two moms or two dad and families with grandparents raising the children.

This gallery means so much to our family, because we too do not look like everyone else. I am re-married and have a beautiful son with my husband. I am still best friends with my ex-husband who vacations with us and spends Sundays together with us as well as every holiday.  We had two little girls together who joined my husband’s two children when we married to form our family of 5 kids. We believe deeply that love makes a family. There are other core values that make a family as well.
