Families are part of our lives

There are many kinds of families – nuclear, extended, single-parent, blended, same-sex, chosen. Each family is unique, with its own structure and dynamics. 

They can provide us with support, love, and a sense of belonging. Or they can be the source of distress.

What makes your family unique and different from others? What are your family's most important traditions, values, and stories? What do you most love about them, and what frustrates you the most about them? Consider the challenges you and your family have experienced.
