We are sisters of 5 in our family. I am the youngest girl from all my sisters. my other sisters are older than me. The least older than me is Santi who is only a year difference than me.

My mother is 67 years of age and my dad died since year 2006. My first eldest sister is Meri, she is 10 years older than me.
My second eldest sister whose name is Elly is 9 years older than me, and she lives in Australia with her husband and daughter, Yori.
My third eldest sister is Futni and I am not sure how many years apart between us two.

I have 2 younger brothers, Robin and Rico. Robin is 1 year younger than me and Rico is 4 years younger than me.
So that makes myself the youngest girl in our family, and Rico is the youngest boy in our family.

I married my wife in 1990 . we have two daughters. my older doughter is a high school student and my younger doughter is a midle school student. we came from Ethiopia Aug 3 2014 and we are live in Virginia . when we came from Ethiopa we experienced many changes. for example culture shock, language barrier and new weather conditions. when we came to the united states the weather was very hot so we were not comfortablel. by now my family and I are good in the United States. glory to God

So Virginia is hotter than Ethiopia? I would not have guessed that! Also, please consider using a spell checker. As a native speaker, I can understand most spelling errors but your classmates who speak English as a second language may have some trouble understanding spelling errors.

I am my parents' one and only daughter. But I was brought up with my extended family,which has more than five teenagers.

My grandma is the oldest person in our family. She has seven children. My mom is the eldest of her siblings.I have four cousins who are like sisters (keerthi,Meena,Andal and sowmiya) and two brothers(srini and hari).We love each other. Keerthi earns more degrees than I and she is one of the most educated girls in our family. But she is not as clever as I :D .

No other teacher is as kind as my dad..He is such a soft hearted man..My mom is a home maker. Though My mom is 25 years older than I,she looks as young as me.Because of our jobs and family situations now we all are in different places,But every Diwali (a hindu festival) we all get together and enjoy ourselves.I love my family very much..

Sounds like Diwali would be a lot fo fun with the family :D Also, thanks for using so many comparisons. Good job :!:

My family is very important to me. I love to meet with them and have some quality time with them. I’m so proud that my family is strong and has good values. I strongly believe that successful societies are built on good families. I have three brothers and each one has a different personality. I’m also married for 9 happy years. We have no kids. My husband and I speak three different languages at home and I guess the most common language is English. I also have two dogs, which make my life exciting and full of surprises. The dogs are part of our family as well and I can’t imagine life without them.

I am the youngest one in my family. My grandparents died since I was 13. Now I am twenty .I have one elder brother. He is twenty-four years old. He is a doctor. Now he is working at City Hospital in Mandalay.
My parents are U Myint Swe and Daw Kyi Kyi Htay. My father is 54 years old and my mother is 52 years old. Until I was 16, he worked for government as an engineer. He used to travel many places. So, he can't stay at home with us. Now he is retired from his work. Therefore, we can live together happily.
My mother is not a government servant . She is a merchant and opens a tea shop at home. Sometimes I have to help my mother. That 's all about my family.

In my culture, my family of seven (husband, wife and five children) is one of the smallest family. I love my children equally both boys and girls. The first-born, a girl, aged 22 is at university pursuing a bachelor degree in journalism. Incidentally, the second-born, a boy, who is one and a half years younger than his sister, is also studying at the same university and pursuing the same course. Then, the third-born, a girl, will join university later this year. Unlike her elder sister and brother, she will study a science course-medicine.

Because of the seven-year age gap between the third and fourth child, (both girls), the younger one is still in primary expected to complete that level at the end of this year. Our youngest male child now aged 8, stays in a boarding school just like all his older siblings.

For me, I don,t like pets very much, but my wife and children do. About three years ago, they adopted a stray dog (Stranger) against my will. But Stranger has become a useful companion of late. She looks healthy now, and she has gained weight.

Perhaps in future, I will consider rearing another dog because of the benefits we are now enjoying from Stranger.
