I like animals. I grew up with and raised a few plus there was the farm thing.
Also, as for family I have my brother who's gay and married, my mother, and Aunt, cousins, and grandmother alive and in town. Those are all adoptive family. My birth father sought me out so I have two families: birth and adoptive. My birth father doesn't live in town. I have not sought out or have been sought out by my birth mother. This is not a divorce thing- some people get confused about that. I was adopted at birth from one couple to a separate unrelated couple.
