Ohana - what a beautiful concept. We make our family by surrounding ourselves with people we love, blood-related or not. Here’s hoping you have a happy and safe 4th!

We definitely have an Ohana family. Many exes, second (and third!) marriages, many step- and half- siblings and their families. And both my hubby's and my families have celebrated together for years. It's warm and comfortable. We currently celebrate holidays with our nephew and his wife and her family, and my step-sister and her family! Happy 4th to all!


I love that idea of family! I lost my father when I was 7 and though my stepfather was awesome, his family made it clear that I was not welcome. I didn’t really understand. My sons wife and family have tiotally embraced his daughter and I am so thankful. I agree that the term family applies to those you love. What a lucky woman you are. Happy 4 th!


What a wonderful concept and do like this...hope your family has a very Happy 4th!!!

I love this concept and all you do for Eva and the rest of your family! Your love for all of them is so heartwarming. Have a wonderful holiday.


Have a lovely 4th and I hope Ozzie doesn't melt down over the fireworks. Ugh. I want them to stop here. ;p

Sounds like a fine time will be had by all in your Ohana family. My parents were both teachers and saw many kids with difficult family lives. We learned early that "Friends are the family we choose for ourselves." It was something they tried to teach their students, that you can have loving and supportive people around you if you choose well, you aren't limited to those issued to you by birth. Happy 4!
