“I don’t care whose DNA had
recombined with whose.
When everything goes to hell,
the people who stand by you
They are your family.”
“That’s what people do who love you.
They put their arms around you
and love you when you’re
not so lovable.”
“You must remember,
family is often born of blood,
but it doesn’t depend on blood.
Nor is it exclusive of friendship.
Family members can be your best friends, you know.
And best friends, whether or not they are related to you,
Can be your family.”
~Trenton Lee Stewart

Thank you to all who are members of my Ohana. I love you. ( Part of Hawaiian culture, ʻohana means family (in an extended sense of the term, including blood-related, adoptive or intentional). The concept emphasizes that families are bound together and members must cooperate and remember one another.’)
“Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.” ~Lilo and Stitch
