  • There are a couple people that aren't blood related that I consider family. I am Aunt to their kids and they are Aunt to mine.

  • Speaking personally, there are some people I consider my family though they aren't blood related.
    The bible teaches us that we are all family and should treat each other as such so I try to go by that too. Though it can be weird at times :)

  • If they truly love. If they really know how to care. Some just use, and put on a show, and some just have no way to care, or don't know how. It really does matter. I mean some people can only care for them selves. Other people want more family but it's not the direct family, so church or groups are good.

    It's all in how you reach out.

  • The relationships I have with some people who I'm not blood related to are more important than many of my blood family members.

  • family is not always blood. Majority of my family is not blood, but three families coming together in a big mutual adoption.

  • A person who loves you and cares for you is family.

    Some family should be forgotten. I do not believe in just because you are family you have to put up with their B.S. Sometimes friends make better family.

  • I see it as family you were given, and then family you chose lol. Seriously. I have a particular Cousin that isn't really a cousin. She just kinda showed up one day, and never left. But I love her to death, she is more like a sister to me lately. So yes, I believe that you can have non blood related family

  • I have family that is blood related and family that isn't. Then again I have some blood related that I don't classify as my family.
