The Wrobel Family :: Warsaw, Poland

"Just after we met, I thought it would be easy for me to answer your question. Now I realize that I have many wishes as to how I want to remember my family. 

I've always cared about my parents and brother and sisters but now that I have my own family I think mostly about them and our home. Our home is not important because of the material things that make it up; it's the base where our family can grow and take rest. We are starting to build our own traditions and we celebrate every day that we are together. Our home is also the place when we invite family or friends to celebrate important life moments, and build new memories. This is where everything starts, and because of that home is important.

Adam and Lena are two hearts that are beating for me and because of me. I need this for everything now - to be woman, wife and mom, to be active in sport, in business, and many other areas of my life.

I deeply believe that we have to live in a balance. It's important to still do things for yourself, like business, sports, parties, etc. But first is family.

We've been together ever since and we've both been welcomed into each other's extended family. Having a family of our own wasn't easy.

"It would be so nice if the little cliché, “blood is thicker then water”, were true.

However, the evidence of multiple experiences prove otherwise.
In my opinion, family was defined when Cain murdered his brother, Abel.
In fact, it is sad but true that the ones who cause a person the most pain are often
members of their own household.
For me, I define my family as those people I love. It is the group of people I share a
loving relationship with. Some may even be related to me by blood, like my father and
maternal grandparents. At the age of forty, I was adopted into the Crow Indian Nation in
Montana. I consider many in my adoptive family, to be part of my family in the larger
context.
My team mates on my college football team were family. I miss them and still love the
memories we shared.
My friends have been family to me in my adult years. This is an ever changing dynamic
group, but still fall within my definition of family.
My wife of 8 years and our adult daughter are the nucleus of the group of people I
consider my family.
In summary, my family consists of a group of people with whom I have a loving

relationship. Some by blood. Some by adoption. Some by marriage. All by choice." -Marc

The Waye Family :: San Francisco, California, USA

"Family is the intertwining and branching of lives under divine purpose. At the core of family is love and faith which provides us our strength, growth, courage and ability to hold on and never let go. A family's love is sometimes subtle, sometimes flamboyant, but always pure.

Keila & Annabel :: Nyack, New York, USA

"What family means to me, I don't know that I can truly encapsulate it in one quote or blurb. However, I know that even it is only the two of us, she and I are a family. We will create our own traditions and memories just like larger ones would. If anything, she is my refuge. My port after a storm. When I have the worst day ever and feel like the world is falling down around me, I come home to her and it is all instantly better. I never truly understood unconditional and PURE love until she came into my life. And so I guess that is family: PURE unconditional love."
