    How did this happen? Where did I go wrong?

    But sometimes family are not the blood

    relations you are born with. My blood family is basically my mum and my brother. I never grew up with cousins and uncles and aunts. In my scottish side of the family, they are family sure but they don't communicate well I guess. My mum's parents died when she was 9 and 10 so...

    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...
