A family doesn't have to be the "traditional" kind. A family means unconditional love.
Sonnet for “Family” …

A family is found in many ways--
With brothers, sisters, mother and a dad.
“Traditional” is just another phrase.
Perhaps a single mom is all you had.

Two moms, two dads, adoption, foster care,
A family means love for everyone.
As long as there is lots of love to share,
These are the ties that cannot be undone.

Through celebrations, tragedies and tears,
A family will always stand by you.
Their unity is one that perseveres
Their words of faith and love are always true.

If through God’s grace, you have a family,
That’s all you really need, I guarantee.
