Welcome to A Knotted Tree

I have a complicated relationship with the word family.

I was born into a family with a rich legacy that is mired in generations of animosity. 

I’ve been blessed to have a circle of friends and loved ones that have become my family over the years. 

There is the family that saved my life, and the family that’s redefining everything I thought I knew. 

And there’s the riddle of the family I didn’t know anything about…and how they have haunted my entire life. 

Each of these extraordinary families have their own stories, filled with joy, and resilience. Each month, starting January 2023, I hope to share them with you. Along the way, we’ll follow my search to find the family that I didn’t know existed.
