Family by: Hannah Witucki

According to Merriam-Webster:
Family: (n) a group of individuals living under one roof and usually under one head
Origin: Middle English familie, from Latin familia household (including servants as well as kin of the householder), from famulus servan
According to me: Family isn’t just the people that live under the same roof or share your DNA.
Family can be anyone.
Family is the people you surround yourself with; the people that love and care, its togetherness.
Family is the people you welcome into your home; people you would do anything for no matter the time of day or limitations. It’s a support system and people you can rely on.
It’s the step father that takes his new wife’s son as his own, the family who welcomes their children’s friends like they’re just another happy addition, and friends that become like brothers and sisters to you.
