Am I my brother’s keeper? I remember being young and hearing this in a movie. I didn’t really understand what it meant until I got older.
I grew up caring for my younger brother while my older brother was in and out of group homes. We really didn’t know much about one another except we shared the same mother, which meant we were family.
Thanks to our family dynamic I was instantly recruited to be caregiver to my brother and all the cousins. The adults were doing drugs while we still needed the essentials to live. I was responsible for whatever needed to be done. I wanted to be a good gilr and that was the role I took on.
I wanted a different life for me and my brothers unfortunately what they wanted resembled our upbringing. These differing desires lead to different paths in life. They thought it would be acceptable to me names and make fun of how proper I spoke, my personality, and goals in life. They just didn’t understand me.
Later, I realized how my brothers made me stronger and helped me with life’s lessons. I made a conscious decision to rebuild the bond with them by reconciling with them and being completely hones with them about our differences which brought us closer.
I just wanted to be a part of something. Can you relate? Sibling restoration is so much bigger than just siblings coming together. It’s about finding the strength and courage to forgive and create and unbreakable bond. I want to help you secure the bonds with any family member that has been severed.
