    Default I lost my brother this week...

    On Tuesday I got a call that my younger brother had passed away, it was unexpected, he was only 31. He is divorced with an almost 3yr old son, it has devastated our family. But I can say how thankful I am for my own large family at this time. I am the second of 8 children, and he was the third. I am sooo sooo grateful to have so many siblings to lean on at this time, there is always someone to talk to in my grief and to reminisce with.

    He was adopted and was by blood my cousin, my mom adopted him from my aunt when he was 1. Unfortunately the two mom's have not talked in many years and this situation has not helped any, so there has been a lot of family drama, so what was already hard has become even more difficult. Please keep my family in your prayers.

    Mostly though, I wanted to post to again say how grateful I am to come from a large family.

    Rachel - I am sorry about the loss of your brother. He was too young. I agree with you, it's so nice to be part of a large family (I'm from a family of 6 kids)

    I've been thinking of you since I heard the news, I am just so sorry & also sorry to hear about the family drama. I don't know why funerals always bring that out in people! Having a lot of siblings to lean on really is very comforting & I am so glad you have that right now.
