"I am eternally thankful for my family. My parents provide for me, with food, shelter, and all the understanding they can afford. My brothers' humor never ceases to make me feel light and carefree, even when the jokes on me. I am thankful that my family enthusiastically accepts the same quirks that strangers, and even some friends, give me the side-eye for. I am thankful that when I'm home, I get to be at home."
