Family is everything to me! I have the most amazing highly functioning dysfunctional family. Some are blood and some are not. That's just how I roll - as an only child I have always adopted close friends into my family. I was raised by my grandparents in Brooklyn NY and my siblings were my three cousins and my friends. I've been lucky enough to have not one but two awesome step-dads, a starter husband, a forever husband, a daughter of my own, two beautiful bonus daughters, my daughter's other mother who has become one of my greatest friends and friends I love deeply and I who I know love me back.
