You are my family because I CHOOSE you. - jlh

You are my family because I CHOOSE you.
- jlh


My Chosen Family
You are my family, but we don't share blood.
You are my family by choice.
The most powerful bond is the one that we choose.
I choose you as my friend, and rejoice.
- jlh

Some of us have relationships with our blood relatives that are uncertain at best, but that doesn't mean that we can't enjoy a loving family. The most wonderful family is the one we Choose - whether we happen to share blood with them or not. Have deep gratitude for your Chosen family.
A quote from LIVE BOLDLY
fate makes us family. choice makes us friends.

  1. Thank you for this encouragement today. I will
    share this with my son who has chosen a girlfriend, her little daughter and the rest of
    her family. The little girl now has a father because her own father died very young. They also have another little Boy together, and I am
    so happy for them. My whole Family lives in Germany, I am divorced and remarried, living in
    Northern Ontario and now moving out West with my
    new husband. I will explain to my Son that he chose his new family wisely and no matter how far away I am, he will always be loved.
