Family is unconditional acceptance, support, safety and peace regardless of blood relation. Family is the freedom to be you without judgement or condemnation. It is the pillow that cushions your fall and the spring that pushes you back up. Family is absolute love.

Family means love, history, identity, support, special bonds, and connection with relatives and close people in our lives. Family means coming together in support of loved ones in good times and in times of need.

Family is that safe place you can go to and be yourself – not always perfect but always a part of you. Family is home, wherever that home resides, and we build ourselves from the blocks of that home’s foundation.

Family is who you most count on, who you turn to in times of trouble, and who you celebrate with in times of joy. Your family gives you a sense of belonging, security, and values. Your family knows you better than anyone and will always love you.
