My bothers and sisters are much older than I am. My parents divorced when I was two years old. My dad is not apart of my life, he is very disengaged. I do however, keep in contact with my siblings. Thinking about who plays what role in my family was really tough.
The foster parents give the child new opportunities, but sometimes the biological parent or parents want their child back, and usually win custody of the child. Adoptive families go through a very expensive, legal process in order to become the legal guardians of a child in need of a good home. A single parent family is a family with only one parent. My family is a blended family, my mom and dad have been together for about 20 years, but before my mom and dad met my dad had a previous relationship. He had two children, a boy and a girl.
Everyone has a family, rather it is with your biological relatives or long-time friends. A lot of people have been raised in different types of households rather it is with a grandparent or a foster parent. Everyone has their own individual story of their particular support system. In most cases, people have been raised with both parents, which is ideal in this society. As years gone by, a lot of changes have occurred within raising a family, whether it be getting raised by a LGBT couple or being raised by a sibling.
Families can be broken up into five different types. The first is the traditional family, which includes a mother, father, and their biological children. Next, is the blended family which includes two adults and children, but because of divorce they may have children of other parents. Unfortunately, single-parent families are being seen more often. Extended families include parents, children, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins and any other close relatives.
I have two uncles and an aunt that are currently dealing with high blood pressure and my father has diabetes. Growing up, my parental family were very close and we had great communication. However, since my grandmother passed away, we have experience estranged in some relationships. I always thought my aunt Victoria raised me since I was born, but I didn’t go to live with her until I was 9 years old. I was informed that I was with my mother up to the age of 2 years, then I went to live my paternal grandmother until 9 years old.
What is a Family Family is a group of people like parents, children, siblings, grandparents, grandchildren uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, cousins, spouses, siblings in law, parents in law and children in law. Who are considered to be related in some way such as by blood, by common ancestry, by descent or by marriage. There are two types of families, the nuclear and the extended family. The nuclear family is residentially based, it’s members live together, others are not residentially, they live apart but come together for family reunions from time to time. A good example of this the contrast in the meaning and role of family between the United States and Brazil the two most populous countries.
Then the day after New Years my mom left. I was in shock. My older brother left with her. So it was only my dad, younger brother, and me at the house now. My mom moved into a hotel for awhile, before finding an apartment.
On my mom 's side I have a total of nine aunts and uncles, while on my dad 's side I only have one uncle. I have two sisters and three brothers but only my oldest brother and younger sister have the same mom as me. As you may have already notice I have a complicated life. During my childhood my mom and dad were married and we lived in a nice big house along with my brother and sister. When I was in maybe 6th grade my mom and dad got a divorce, that’s when life became extra
After fourteen years of marriage my parents were divorced. Shortly after being divorced both my mother and father found their way into new marriages. When my father married my step-mother I gained two step-brothers. Finally, once my mother remarried for the third time, my half-sister was born into the family. Complicated would be too mild of a word to describe growing up with such a family.
I was born in a city called Norristown, about twenty minutes right outside of Philadelphia, Pa. I grew up in a household with my mother, step-father and three sisters. As a child, I did not know it but I did have two other brothers whom my grandparents reared from birth, I would not learn of our true blood relationship until I was about six years of age. That being said, I never knew that I was not in a “traditional family.” I am the fourth child of six in my immediate family. I have two older brothers, who are eight and six years, my senior; next is my sister Pamela she is 14 months older than me and we are very very close.
