The last I heard, my father is a cook somewhere here in NE Ohio, and is apparently an addict. Other than that, all I really know is that he was never really a Dad to any of us. None of us have very much to do with the man, as he has always been a bit of an underachiever, not only in life, but as a man.
I have even met a couple of my siblings. I have several brothers, one of whom is a great Daddy himself. I even have a sister who has 3 beautiful kids and is a strong, courageous woman. I am blessed to have them in my life now, even though I didn't grow up knowing them.
I guess the point I am trying to make is that there are all kinds of families. Even really unconventional ones like mine. Family isn't about blood or DNA. It's about love. Dependability. The true desire to make others happy. Sometimes, blood alone doesn't provide that much. So whether you have a "normal" family, a blended family, an adoptive family, or a weird combination of all of the above, feel blessed. Celebrate it. Tell them you love them every chance you get.
So while I am not one of 533 kids like the characters in the upcoming film, Delivery Man, I am one of many....This story definitely hits home for me, and I cannot wait to see the film!
In the meantime, here is a BRAND NEW trailer for the movie. You're seeing it here (and on 532 other blogs) first! How cool is that?!
