CYG, Day 14: Family

This is what my family looks like. Some of us are related by blood. Some of us met in church. Some in martial arts classes. Others we met along the way of life. One isn't human and doesn't like us much although we like her. But everyone here has supported us, laughed with us, cried with us and just....lived with us. I'm so thankful for my family of friends! In fact, I'm in the process of gathering photos for our stairwell. Some people have family walls...we're going to have a friend wall! If your photo isn't here and it should be, it's because you haven't sent me a photo yet!!

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:9–12

This blog post is for the worldwide event Capture Your Grief in honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Day 14, Family: What does you family look like now? Is it just yourself carrying your child’s heart in yours? Do you have other children? A partner? A pet? You may not have what society perceives as a family but we all know that just because you cannot see any children, that does not mean that they are not a part of your family.
