I'm really thrilled for Nathan to have so much extended family close by. Since he doesn't have siblings, yet, it means the world to me for him to have such deeply rooted family ties. Nathan is fortunate to have cousins, uncles and grandparents that he gets to see often. He's also blessed to have extended families (friend's kids who are like cousins), and grandparents all over the country.
When I was being raised I always had lots of extended family close. My dad's siblings and my mom's siblings and of course Nany and her kids who have always been sisters and a brother to me. Being an only child was always lonely, but made much less so by the presence of my loved ones. While I still hope Nathan will have siblings, I'm comforted by the knowledge that his family roots run deep and wide and he will never be alone.
