    Family

    I think family is everything. It is important to spend quality time together when possible, to have fun together, share new experiences, and last but not least to talk about things. A family can break down quickly if there is a lack of communication and i do believe children are...

    It took me about fifteen years to realise just

    how important family really is. I don't think I could survive without them now.

    My Family

    My family has always been the center of my life--whether it was when I was growing up-my siblings were so very important to me, as my family grew--nephews one right after the other-then the nieces that were adopted-they were so important and still are.  Then when I had...
