  1. This is so true, we’ve said the same thing many times. We don’t have relatives here either, but our friends have become our “Perth family” and those bonds mean a lot because we’ve all been through similar things.

  2. Having come here with my own family way back in 1974 and had just the 4 of us I certainly agree. I haven’t had extended family since I was 10 so when I got married and Danelle was related to half of Australia it was a shock to the system. I was used to only hanging with people I ‘liked’, but family aren’t always that… I was inducted into the world’s largest extended family and had to learn some new ways of thinking – your kids may be in the same boat! 🙂
