    I have many nieces and nephews. I am especially close with 5 of my nieces. My husband and I were unable to have children of our own. These nieces are like our own children. So much so, that one of my nieces allowed me to be in the delivery room when she had her first son. I don’t know what I would do without them. I’ve told them they have to sneak the wine to me when I am in the nursing home.

    I have 3 nieces and 2 nephews by blood and about 10 other kids I feel fit that description. They also brighten my day and show me that no matter how old I am, I can still play silly games and act goofy and they will be right there with me.The carefree way we can just talk and “hang” always reminds me of what I am thankful for all year.

    My sistees 3 beautiful kids are like my own when one gets,hurt bad by someone that is suppose to be a father figure I took action and got my sister away from it. Those kids make me want more but I am getting to old for it. Would buy these kids anything they want because my sister is single mother of 3 and works to support all by herself.

    If you have seen my other posts then you might know that since my sisters are between 16 & 13 years older then me that they were more like moms then siblings, so the first few neices an nephews are as close to me as most brothers an sisters. My sister Cathy’s (she is the youngest of my big sisters) three children though are more like my first set of kids. They reffer to my as mom2 an even though now are all over 21 still come to my house to hang out, eat an just check in. I was only around 10 when I started to watch her first child. Cathy was a single mom (she didn’t marry until just a few years back when she was 43) she worked to jobs an at that time was also going back to college, since she lived in the same apartment complex as us I helped with ty, then xanadu an eventually dillen. By 15 even as I went to school everyone knew I had my three kiddos much of the time after, when I was in highschool their school would call my school if one was sick since they knew Cathy would likely be at work or trying to sleep between jobs. I had my first child two weeks before I turned 16, an unlike many teen moms I knew exactly how to handle a baby, an still went to school while taking care of her. To me she was my fourth kid, even my hubby when we met an was very determined to win over my daughter, spent alot of time with my other set. By then though Cathy was living with us, she was down to only one job an so spending more time her kids. If she hadn’t been able to step back up to more of a mom role I probably wouldn’t have moved in with my hubby. Though they still spent nights an days hanging out. My three think of them as siblings an are very close to them as well. Xan calls my hubby her “uncad” uncle-dad an has actually lived with us during her last year of highschool. Now dill has a 4 year old daughter who I get to babysit an spend alot of time with an xan is prego with her first. I love all 10 of my neices an nephews (only 3 of the 10 are neices lol) an I have always tried to be the aunt they can go to if they need anything or the aunt they can call if they are in trouble an to scared to call home. I have always been so thankful to my hubby for understanding my connection to all of them (he has only a brother an only a neice an two nephews) we are a large family who love each other an are thankful we can help one another no matter how tight the budget or how far away they are (two nephews an a sister live in Oklahoma around 8 hours away) ….thanks for letting me share some of the biggest things I’m thankful for with you!!! https://millytaiden.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gifhttps://millytaiden.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yes.gif

    I know what you mean about loving your niece and nephew like your own. I have 4 nieces and 2 nephew (the oldest being only 8 years younger than me). I helped take care of the 3 older ones before I had my own daughter, taking them to school, buying them their favorite happy meal, being their friend and aunt. And continuing to this day to be someone they can come to. I’m also lucky that my 3 younger nieces are around my daughters age so she has others to play with since she is an only child. We

    I have a couple of nieces and one nephew from my step siblings. I was the only one out of the 4 girls who could have children.

    Unfortunately I am not very close to them, not for lack of trying. My step sister and I do not get along, she is the “parent” of one niece and my nephew. I have tried to make sure the kids know that we are always there for them, no matter the relationship I have with their mom.

    My other niece is from my step brother. They don’t live as close as the others. We did not become close until recently, by then my niece was already an adult. We are friends, and I hope she knows we are there for her.

    I have been blessed with 2 neice and a nephew. My sister’s kids are young and I babysat them up until it was time for them to go to school. I don’t see them as often anymore because of that and where they live. My the neice is an adult and I have to say t h at I don’t know what I would without her in my life. We were never really close due to a divorce of her parents but when she became an adult she came to me. Ever since then she has been there for me when I needed her, especially after I had a stroke. She has taken me to doctor appointments after doctor appointments, been there for my kids when they needed her, or just kept me company. I have also been there when she needed me as much as I can be. She comes over 3 to 4 days week even though she goes to college and she works. She is one special young lady who I love like she was my own and I very thankful for having her in my life.

    Beautiful family you have and thanks for the chance. I have 22 nieces and nephews that I adore with all my heart. I actually just became godmother to my youngest niece last Sunday. I am so proud of my older nieces and nephews that are in college, it’s them who their cousins look up to for guidance and I hope will follow in their footsteps. I became an aunt at 10 but didn’t really understand what the term meant till I was older. I look at my oldest niece and marvel at the woman she has become. I am beyond proud to be their aunt, and they know they can always count on me. It’s what family is for. :)

    I have 4 sons that I love dearly along with 9 nieces and 4 nephews. (Large Italian family). They are all very different from one another yet when we are all together it is a blast. We all always have a great time whether we are at a family function or if we are just all playing video games and hanging out. We all live far from each other now, 3 nieces in Dallas, my 4 boys in Pittsburgh, 3 nephews and 3 nieces in Toronto, and the rest in Vancouver. Getting together is difficult, but we do try to do it at least once a year.

    I have 5 nieces and 2 nephews. My oldest nephew is a new father, and is serving our country via the Army and is currently deployed in Afghanistan. He is a loving, caring, and loyal man. His dedication to his country and family is just one of the things I admire about my nephew.

    My oldest niece is a freshman at the University of Virginia. She has always been a straight A student, graduating with honors and the respect of her family and entire student body. She volunteers still at food kitchens, homeless shelters, and Humane societies in her area.

    My youngest nephew is a junior in high school, straight A student, star football and lacrosse player. He’s just an all American kid.

    My next oldest niece is a freshman in high school in Virginia, where she lives on our family farm. She’s an experienced equestrian and wants to become a large animal vet. She volunteers at local farms with fostering abused horses.

    My third, fourth, and fifth nieces have seen a lot in their short years of life. At the young ages of 10, 7, and 4 my sister, their mother lost custody of the girls because of her severe drug addiction. My middle sister gained custody of our nieces and they have adjusted perfectly to a normal, happy, loving household. They remember what they suffered at the hands of their mother and harbor no ill will toward their parents but choose not to see them now. They have all of us, including my dad, husband, son, and in-laws to provide that loving stable environment. If I win the kindle I will be giving it to my 10 year old niece who wants to be a writer and is already an avid reader!

    Thank you for the chance!

    I am an “Auntie” to 3 boys…I have been in my BestFriend’s boys’ lives since they were born, in fact I witnessed each of their births! The oldest is my godson and was baptized on my birthday, Easter Sunday. He is so smart he tends to try the patience of the adults around him when he gets bored. Oh, the Mischief! Her middle son was born a few weeks before halloween. He is even smarter and so gentle and giving. Her youngest was born a few weeks after halloween. So artistic! Looking through his eyes is a precious gift! When they are in accord and not fighting, Watch Out! We wouldn’t trade these three imps for all the gold in the world!

    I am the awesomely blessed aunt of three nieces and four nephews. These amazing lights of loves have come from friends who saw fit to entrust their lovely offspring to me, they allow me to speak over their lives, encourage them, spend time with them, love on them, etc. I am so proud of the little individuals they have become and are evolving into. I pray God’s continued guidance and blessing over their lives. My oldest, Dominique, is a college junior, straight A student all her life, full of compassion. TarDarious, my oldest nephew, he loves deep, loyal, graduates high school this year and wants to go to the military. He is active at church. Lady Dai, is 16, wants to be s singer. She’s a poet at heart. She’s very observant. Cole is love. He is one of the people that you just feel blessed to know. He is smart, funny, helpful, shy. Kennedy is a hoot! Her favorite word right now is nope! She has a sneaky smile and she cracks herself up up! The twins, E & E, are the most happiest babies evers! One is silly like his mommy and one is more is serious like daddy or tries to be, but still busts into laughter. If God doesn’t see fit to give me my own, I truly am already blessed with this bunch that He’s given me!

And just like my own 5 kids, they all have their own personalities and endearing qualities. They have all grown up (more or less) together, so we have all been doubly blessed to be close=knit.

    I have two nephews and one niece who take up so much space in my heart. My niece, Miki, is a 17 year old girl already planning her future and I am so proud of her high standards for herself in how she lives. Miki is strong in her heart and focuses on living for her future while still showing her heart to all who need it. My nephews are 12 and 13 both have such great hearts and will do anything for those who need it. Bug, the 13 year old is so loving and such a well rounded young man who adores his family and makes sure their care comes before his playing. Butter, the 12 year old, is one who will stand up for those in need and always has (including fighting someone making fun of a young man who had down syndrome when in 1st grade). I pray these three continue with their academics as well as they have been and yet that their hearts continue to grow in bounds.

    I have 1 blood niece and 2 cousins that I call my nieces and my god-brother has 2 boys and 1 girl that I also consider my niece and nephews. They range from 5months old to 8 years old and they all think I’m awesome and love me like crazy. I love the way the run to me when they see me and the hugs and kisses I get from them whenever I see them ALWAYS makes my day. Whenever I’m depressed or in need of something to make me feel better the girls will come up to me and either hug or kiss me and pat my back or cheek and tell me “it’s alright Auntie Heather I love you” and I always laugh because they never need to be prompted to do that they just want to make you feel better and to show that they love you unconditionally. I thank God for them at least once a day because I would be lost without them in my life.

    I have 1 nephew and have yet had the opportunity to meet him, but he is a handsome little boy. My best friend is about to have twins and I can’t wait to spoil them the way their momma spoils my son.

    I have a total of 25 nieces/nephews 18 great nieces/nephews and 7 great great nieces/nephews
    my greatest memories are growing up with 3 nieces and 2 nephews that were born in the same year as me. I was the auntie and playmate to them.

    I have no children of my own so I consider my niece and nephew to be community property….we all share them. lol! They are both great kids, They do well in school and are active in sports. They are both very loving and giving. I wouldn’t trade them for anything.
