Spectator by Seema Goswami: The families we choose
As you grow older and find your own tribe, you realise that blood really isn’t thicker than water. It’s the friends you make who become your family
How do you define a family? Is it just people linked by DNA and marriage? Is it restricted to mom/dad, kids, and maybe two sets of grandparents? Does it encompass the extended clan, no matter how far removed? Can it ever include those who are not related to you by blood, but by laughter and tears instead?
