Family is either
what you are blessed to be born into
or those people you surround yourself with
I am flocked by
my natural family,
my Church brethren,
and then dearest friends
that I am thankful
to count as family.
- Lorie Ann Grover
Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future. ~ Gail Lumet Buckley

It sounds as though you have a wonderful support system surrounding you!
