As the young ones grow, they may go their separate ways. But when the clan comes together, their shared history and how they care for each other shows -- sometimes obviously in grand gestures, sometimes subtly through their body language and how they behave with each other.
This beautiful family is bound by strength, courage and support for one another through tough times at home and overseas. Despite their very different careers and independent lives in far away states, they make time to be together to praise achievements, celebrate special occasions, help in times of need and mark the passing of the years.
They are bound by a positive outlook for a shared future, filled with love and joy.
