there are no nameless faces

i am the youngest of 4.

the daughter of 2 still-living, still-married parents.

the sister to 3 brothers.

the sister-in-law to their 3 wives.

the aunt to 4 nieces and nephews.

the niece to 12 uncles and aunts.

the cousin to 22 cousins.

and although no longer with us, the granddaughter to 4 grandparents.

that's my family. and they all love me. know me. would do anything for me.

that's 50 people.

50.

and to think there are children hoping for just 1.
