You Can Change the World

Family isn't always biological or blood related. The bond and ability to form relationships is the most amazing thing humans are capable of. We can't choose our parents or biological family, but we can choose those we love, care for, support and form unbreakable bonds with. Those folks we choose and that choose us are … Continue reading You Can Change the World

I Should Have Known…
