Family

Uncle Stuart kisses his "piece of work" on her "sweet spot!"

As summer is winding down for me, I’ve been reflecting on all of the people we’ve seen and been with over the past few weeks.  The kids and I have been in the U.S. for nine weeks now, and we still have five days to go.  We’ve noted that the definition of family has really expanded.  I don’t want to say “changed” because there’s nothing different about our family, it’s just that we’ve figured out the people who are important to us are not necessarily related by blood.  It’s a good lesson for the kids and me about love and the many shapes and flavors of affections and care.
