I will never forget the excitement of the first cab ride to the home of my partner’s family. I couldn’t stop smiling, and he couldn’t stop poking fun at me.

I met his mom, sister, stepdad, and daughter that night, and it really did signify a new chapter in our lives.

Nearly seven years later, it’s hard to imagine my life without them in it.
