I Love My Friends Like They Are Family

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 195 People

    Believe It!

    My Family Of Choice

    My family consists of one bio brother, a chosen brother, and a chosen sister. My bio bro is my older brother and he wants to join the Marines. He might be somewhat racist, an ***, and a total **** sometimes, but I love him. He might have beat me when we were kids but that's okay...

    Family Of Choice

    That's what my friend Angel calls it.  I like the sound of it.  Through good times and bad, we've all laughed and cried together.  We've all pinched our pennies and scraped together whatever we could when someone needed it.  We've all stood side by side to show support...
