Families come in many shapes and sizes. Who do you include when you talk about “your family” ?

In Hawaii we are made up of lots of different kinds of families. Your family might be the family you were born into or the family you have been adopted into, or even close friends' and their families are often considered an extended part of that circle. Parents or guardians may also offer an awesome and diverse dynamic to your family unit, such as having two dads or two moms, guardian grandparents or guardian uncles and aunties. 

Families may also be huge to include blood relatives, distant relatives, and relatives that have been hanai'd into that circle, or be very small to include you, your parents and one or two siblings and...that's it. 

The possibilities are endless when it comes to defining "family", but there is one thing all families have in common and that is...they provide a sense of belonging. Families are supposed to give identity and provide support and security. 

Your family is made up of the people you care about and the people who care about you.

Below are some helpful links to get some ideas of what you can do with your ohana!
