What Family Is To Me Since birth I have grown up with a different concept of family than most people do Instead of being born into my biological family I was adopted into my given family I have known I was adopted for as long as I can remember because my parents made sure to tell me so at the earliest age that I could understand By adopting me and my sister into the family my parents showed that family means love respect and sacrifice My adoption gave me a family to belong to and be loved by Love is the first part in any family I can be defined in more ways than one Family love is the strongest type because it is unconditional This unconditional love means that no matter what happens my family will still love me They have shown this love for twenty years now And after all the things I have done wrong or done badly my family still shows this unconditional love to me and to each other The second part in a family is respect and trust Trust is something that can take years to build but can be broken very easily By breaking trust with a family member one is also breaking respect of the family The two ideas go hand in hand My parents respected me enough to tell me that I was adopted instead of lying to me and having me find out later in life that I wasnt their biological son This respect that my parents gave me in turn gave me their trust And I gave them the respect and trust that was given to me Without sacrifice a family cannot be The sacrifices that family members make for each other show the willingness to be an unselfish part of a family Sacrifices also display the love respect and trust
