A friend just posted this on her blog, and I couldn't help but post it here also. There's a lot of truth to this article. Too many people are hurt by divorce. And like this writer, Matthew Dicks, I often find myself in awkward situations, trying to explain my family. But fortunately for me, I still keep in contact with all of my family, whether they are legally related to me or biologically related to me or now neither... regardless of the relationship, I am so thankful for the close relationships I have maintained. I know not everyone is as fortunate.
