There are a million moving parts to raising kids, and you can't always anticipate them all...and sometimes you do everything right and something bad just happens. It's as simple, and as scary, as that.

There is no such thing as a "broken family." Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.

The capacity for friendship is God's way of apologizing for our families.
