I am blessed with a wonderful family.
I have two younger sisters and a younger brother. When Mum died nine years ago, my sisters were just 6 and 13 years old, I was 21 and so Mum’s brother and his wife very selflessly took my sisters on as their own, wanting my brother and myself to be free to live our lives without the responsibility of bringing up two young girls when we had barely left our teen years ourselves. This, however meant my sisters were moved from Bournemouth to Bristol.
Despite the distance, we all have a close relationship and so missed each other very much.
