I have heard that we choose our families before birth. I disagree. And I imagine that someone raised in an abusive household would not find that statement very comforting or true. I remember Teejay once talking to me about the concept of karma and how do you explain that to a child who lives in poverty. What did that kid do to deserve their present state?

I do think that as we age there are opportunities to acquire family. I do not mean those people who are related to us by blood, but those people who we have chosen to let into our lives. Those people who are more than acquaintances, more than friends, who are a part of not only our lives but our entire being.

We are family by choice. Family without the extensions.


  1. Totally agree. Especially in communities where people are thrown out of their respective families for just being.

  2. Hi!

    I think you’d be interested in following my blog,

    I just started it two days ago and will be blogging each day.

    I think I have one of the most loving families on the planet and have written a book (“Line of Serenity”) about the way we were raised. Check it out at
