For me I wasn’t close with my mom. She had 15 years to understand me and to this day she has never changed since my parents divorced. As a kid she confused me with things I could and could not do and tried to force me to be a person I didn’t want to be. To this day it’s awkward and hard to trust people and truly be me. After I met these wonderfully amazing humans, I realized how much of a great human I am and can be. I trust them with all my heart and they have opened and awakened the person that I’ve been kicking down all these years. They don’t know it, but I am beyond grateful for them and I love them oh so much. Family is love, not blood. I am proud to call them family and let them be a part of mine. ❤
