18 Pictures Proving That Family Bonds Are a Blessing Not to Take for Granted

A strong family is characterized by unconditional love and solidarity. While having healthy communication and sharing moments together are critical to building bonds between family members, supporting and standing up for one another, especially when times are tough, are crucial to making those bonds even stronger and unbreakable.

We at Bright Side have put together 18 pictures that encapsulate what it is to be bound together in genuine family love.

1. “My dad and my daughter, probably one of my favorite pictures ever”

2. “15 years ago, my dad donated me a kidney, and 3 years to this date, my uncle donated me his.”

“If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be here today.”

3. “My sister has special needs and loves babies. We got her a reborn doll and threw her a surprise baby shower. She loves her new baby.”

7. “Seeing my husband the day after donating 68% of my liver to him”

8. “Mom used to sing this song to us when we were kids. In her last days, she wrote those words down and we got tattoos with her handwriting.”
