My dear friends in Los Angeles and around the world are family to me.
My dad and sister and aunts and uncles and cousins are family to me.
My husband's parents and siblings and nieces and nephews are family to me.
My husband, my stepkid, my adopted son, our goofy dog – all these beings are family to me.
I am grateful for an ever-expanding concept of family, for if anything benefits from fluidity and evolution, it's the group of folks you love who love you right back.
