Family looks like…
Family looks like a sister who recently moved to Colorado, pregnant with twins and an already-mother of a three-year-old. A brother who loves animals and cries during a children’s cartoon because the mother panda dies. A father who travels the world for work, whose heart longs for the wooden swing of his father’s cabin. A brother whose love language includes teasing and texting his favorite beer and books. A sister who mixes paint colors and takes notes in sociology class and visits the home of an abused child in a single day. And a mother who coaxes green from the ground, who harvests buckets of green beans and tomatoes, who has grown from the poverty and abuse of her own childhood soil to become something resilient, determined, gritty, a sunflower that has learned to turn its face toward the light.
