What does "family" mean to you?
Family includes the people who will drop everything when you need them -- and the ones who recognize when you really need them (even if you say you don't).
Who do you consider to be the members of your family?
Blood is definitely important - I would call on anyone in my traditional family, and I know they would answer. I also am lucky enough to have some friends - both lifelong and more recent - whom I know would do the same.
