We are learning to care for, love, and bring into our families people who come from different cultures or ethnicities, are gay or straight, are blood relatives or relatives by choice.

Even with climate change and growing populations, there’s enough for everyone if we work together toward these 3 big ideas: keep it clean, use it wisely, and share it fairly.
