In every family there are problems. In every family the members make mistakes, especially in the young age. But a time comes when we have to grow up and come back together. We have to learn to adjust to one another. Sometimes we won’t understand why a person does something until years later.
This story is all about learning to be a family. Whatever our nature, whatever our mistakes shouldn’t be allowed to tear the family apart. Otherwise who else would we lean onto in difficult times.
