The Burgess Family

Blended family

About my family

I have 6 siblings, dad, mom, and a step mom. 5 sisters and 1 brother. at first my family was nuclear, then my mom and dad got a divorced. My dad, older sister and I moved in with my dads female friend. she was a total stranger to me so I count my dad to be a single parent. we kept moving and my dad was still a single parent a long with my mom. My dad and I ended up alone and had to move in with my mamaw and papaw (my dads parents). We became a extended family, then dad and i rented a house and all my sisters moved in. my dad was still a single parent. my dad ended up meeting a nice woman, she has 2 kids. He took a long time to get to know her, soon I got to meet her to and became friends. They started to date and spend alot time together. My dad decided to ask her to marry him, and she said yes. Now we all live together in a nice house. excepted 2 of my sisters, they lived with my mom. My family is now a wonderful blended family! Everyone gets along, I mean there are fights every once in a while like a normal family. But the truth is we all feel like a nuclear family! We will always love each other and when we can spend time with each other something wonderful happens, we all laugh and smile and its amazing how 2 different families and make 1 huge family and make everyone happy!
