I am thankful for my parents, step-parents, grandparents, and in-laws. I am very lucky to be surrounded by loving, supportive adults. My mom, my dad and step-mom, my grandmother, my mother-in-law and step-father-in-law, my father-in-law, my grandmother-in-law.
My children are loved by many people. They share names with strong men from our family, they have been supported and encouraged by so many people. They have adults who understand and talk to them in ways their parents don’t. They have caring adults who KNOW them.
I am thankful to be in a circle of caring and support.
