What family are you talking about exactly?

The human family?

Your supposed immediate family?

I don't see any family here do you?

Not going by the definition of the word family anyway. Change that word as well I suppose.

No one ever had "family" whatsoever.

No support, thats obvious, never has been for anyone.
