You don’t have to be blood to be considered family, because at the ended of the day family with screw you over worse than a friend or enemy.

They will talk about you behind your back, they act like there better than anyone in the family. So to me blood don’t mean nothing to me, its being truthful, honest and love.
Family to me means a whole lot of love, warmth, sharing memories, laughing. Family means everything to me it take it very serious.
