The family we choose.

The family we choose are more precious than the ones we’re thrust upon.

The family we choose are drawn to us,  called to us by forces unseen but felt deeply.

The family we choose love us for who we are, for how we show ourselves, the mistakes we make and successes we celebrate.

For those of us shut out of the family we were born into, the family we choose is more valuable, more influential and more important than anyone else can fully understand.

They family we choose give us a place in the world when the world rejects us.

The family we choose is truly our family, for better or worse, because they want to be, not because they have to be.
