  • No. My family has turned their backs on me so many times. I believe that Love is thicker then blood. I have non related people care for me way more then my own family.

  • Blood means NOTHING to me. I was adopted as a newborn and my adoptive parents and I have the same bond that I have with my biological children. There is no difference at all, which proves that blood is not what makes a family, and it doesn't have to be there for you to feel give/receive unconditional love and support. They are my real parents in every way that matters. I have no attachment to my biological relatives outside of my two children.

  • No, sometimes the most toxic people in your life can be family members.

  • I believe family was a design intended to provide support through the difficult world we live in. But nowadays family is 8th to money, new family (husband, kids), technology, car, career, retirement,education. Family has become, for many, more of a burden than a support structure, unfortunately.

  • Yes, family is family. No matter how upset you may be, when it all comes down to it......they are family. You never side with someone against family - ever.
