Once we’ve met our basic human needs, we begin thinking about how to enrich our lives. One of the most fundamental ways we do this is to create a family.
In this day and age families look very different. Some children have two parents, while other have one. Some children live with grandparents or aunt or uncles. Some children have brother and sisters. Others have step-brothers and sisters or step-parents. Sometimes children are adopted. Pets and close friends can be part of your family!
Regardless of what a family looks like, we agreed that families are filled with the people we love.
When people come together to share a space, interest, or values, they are a community. We are a part of many different communities—our hometown, hobbies, sports teams, or spiritual group. Even our school is a community!
