About Complicated Families

Families are the survuval mechanism of the human race. They all are complicated, even though many people think that theirs is the most difficult one. Behind the closed door of every home is a group of people who love each other, who disappoint each other, who come into conflict, and who are deeply connected.Complicated to me means alive, never staying the same, always taking up energy and attention. My aim in this blog is to tell stories of families dealing with the revelations of secrets that have been revealed--how complicated is that!
