Aw this is so sweet.  It’s natural for you to have this reaction when you come from a “broken” home.  But it is wonderful that you are realizing they love YOU for you and not because they have to like you cause you are his girlfriend.  They will make GREAT in-laws one day, you are so lucky 🙂

It is natural for you to be want those things but I am so happy you have found them. I am close with my immediate family but we don’t see each other much and I don’t talk to extended family. My Fiance has a huge family that get together all the time for functions and I feel very out of place. It is hard because his parents do not speak English and I do not speak Spanish. So there is that barrier and they are very very traditional which I didn’t grow up with. When I did go visit I spent most of my time watching my FI’s niece and nephews and my kids. I feel so happy for you because becoming part of you BF’s family is so important. I really wish I could find a way to bond with my FI’s more. Best of luck to you . . . I am sure you are going to really enjoy the holidays this year. =)

@aokay:  I’m getting misty-eyed reading your first post.  So glad that you’ve found a family that wants you to be a part of their lives.

Aww this is the sweetest thing ever. You know, often people come here to vent about their terrible in-laws (makes me so thankful mine are awesome!) – but this is great to remind us that there are good stories too! I hope you guys have an awesome holiday season together!
