Family comes in all shapes and sizes...

We couldn't have picked a better topic to send this week than one about family. Just today, we heard the news that The Supreme Court found DOMA unconstitutional, which takes the fight for marriage equality one step closer in the right direction. Families come in all shapes and sizes, and the glue that holds it all together is not sexual orientation but love. 

Families are like fudge mostly sweet with a few nuts.
