Family Dynamics In My Family

Family Dynamics When I was nine years old my brother died, he was eighteen. I will never forget the day it happened and I will never forget how it changed my family. It changed my family in both bad and good ways.

While there are a lot of good things that happened after my brother died I’m sure everyone in my family would agree that we would trade it all to have him back. We all know that’s not how it works and are grateful that we all get to be together and learned to cope with what happened.
