I've got all my sisters with me!

Blake loves his family. This bodes well for our family! He talks with his parents and siblings frequently and always speaks highly of them. He clearly wants them to be happy and always hopes they're doing well. One of his sisters had surgery this week, and he's been doing a good job of keeping in touch with her since we can't be there in person. He's very considerate of their feelings.

When his sister Holly came to visit us in July, he made sure she had a good time and planned a really great trip for her. Today, she was in the orchestra of Mannheim Steamroller on an NBC figure skating special and was excited whenever we spotted her. Blake was so proud of her. "That's my sister!"

He's likewise getting to know and care about my family as well, which means a lot to me.

Family relationships are important to Blake and I look forward to the bonds he forms with any family members who join us in the future!

That's all so important. There are those who might say you marry the person and not the family, but that's not entirely true. Things are so much better when in-laws are just family you didn't grow up with.
