I was really kinda nervous - being in a house with so many people - meeting new family that I didn't really know - and all the other unknowns.
I had hoped to find some great step siblings and in-laws that I could relate to and call family - but I did not... what I found instead were brothers and sisters - FAMILY.
Having grown up an only child it is an odd feeling to know that I now have siblings and such a large extended family. But it is a great feeling, and a welcome feeling.
I hope that you all had as great a time as I am having.
And thank you for making me feel welcome - wanted - and FAMILY!
