All Kinds of Families

A family is YOU. And the people who live with you, and love you, and take care of you.

There are all kinds of families, but your own is the one you know best.

Families come in all sizes.


Families come in all ages, too.

Young families with young children.

Middle-aged families with teen-aged children.

Old families with grownup children and grandchildren.

Families come with all kinds of people, different sizes, different ages. They make all kinds of families.

A family is people who belong together. Like husbands and wives and their children. Like mothers and children ... like fathers and children. Like grandparents and grandchildren.

People who live together, love together, fight together and make up, work and play with each other, laugh and cry and live under one rood together ... They are a family.

What's special about a family? It's the feeling you have about each other from living in the same place, sharing good times and bad times ... growing together.

A family can be a mother, a father, and children who are growing up.

A family can be a mother and her children, living, loving, working and sharing.

A family can be a father and his children, living, loving, working and sharing.

A big sister or a big brother taking care of other children ... can be a family.

And a father and a mother together, their children grownup and away ... can be a family.

Children who live far away send letters. They write, "I'll be home soon. Can hardly wait to see everybody."

They telephone, too. "Hi, Mom! Hi, Dad! How are you? I'll be home for the holidays."

Families like to come together, for holidays, birthdays, a wedding, for sad times and for happy times.

When families get together, they talk a lot, they eat a lot, they laugh a lot.

When everyone has said good-bye, the home feels empty.
