Dont let other people decide what is and what's not for you ..
Its your life after all .
pure and simply, you're a family.
I'd say by the fourth child you've encroached upon a major tax break!
I think people can stuff it.
You absolutely are a family. You're probably closer than larger families.
That makes you special. And that makes them jealous.
You are a family. Never mind what other people think.
(IMO, my companion animals are also my family members...)
You are, f'them
You are a family. Especially when you are in it for the long haul.
It's just my Daughter and myself at my home now, we are definitely Family.
As are the two of you.
they have no idea of family
What you mean "real" family? It's you and your daughter.... if that's all you've got that's your family right there. It doesn't matter what people think, it doesn't matter what the world thinks. It's about what you know.
Doesn't take more than 2. It's no about how many people, it's about bonding.
I think that you are a family as long as you love your daughter and treat her in a manner that is befitting of a parent figure.
You are a family even if you're two
