What does it mean to describe a friend as “like family”? When is “family” actually about disconnection rather than connection? In what ways do people “choose” their own family members? Are members of a nation part of a “national family”? How do processes like international adoption shape understandings of race within families? How do caregiving ties constitute or complicate kinship relationships?
