Family is...

Family is being together.

Family is happiness.

Family is goodness.

Family is a rollercoaster.

Family is laughter.

Family is something you are awarded and given.

Family is not a want, but a need.

We need it to thrive.

We need it to feel important.

No matter where you go, family is there.

Family is precious

My family is my precious happiness.

It is where my heart lies.

Sandra's poem, Family is..., was selected as the third place winner of FosterClub's Creative Expression Contest.
