You can define that in any number of ways. The conventional and the not so conventional. I have a family at home and at work. It's like that.
Annabelle and I have been together for a long time - we never had any kids, I came with one and we were too busy trying to be rock stars to bother with kids. And here we are all these years later, a son,a daughter and grand kids.
Beyond that we have a family...these are our kids, brother and sister.
Like I said...Family.
