My family consists of seven people, five children, mom, and dad. We are a big bunch, so usually the family's at the grocery store with the kids running around everywhere, and mom hollering frantically. We are unique because though there are so many of us, we're still a tight pack. Nowadays, families don't even talk to each other. Strangely, we are not all separated, age wise. So, that leaves us with many people to talk with. We all have our unique personalities, and that's what makes our social gatherings loads of fun. I wouldn't change my family for anything!

Victoria G.

Weslaco High School

My family is unique because they take the time to get to know each individual in our family. All of us are different, but we all take the time to come together and share new and exciting events. We want to know that if something bad were to happen, that person would know how much we truly loved and knew them beyond extent. I'm very grateful for my family, and thank God we all take the time to connect.

Samantha S.

Weslaco High School

My family is unique because I have out white when the rest of my family is as brown as dirt. I don't really know why or how I came out like this, no one else in my family came out like this. I stand out a lot when I am with my family because every one around me is brown and I am white and have blonde hair and green eyes and I just don't fit in. That is how my family is unique, they had a white baby and don't even know how.

Jesus C.

Weslaco High School

My family is unique because they are always creating their own traditions. During the holidays I never know what to expect, because every year it is always something different. Christmas last year was a riot, because we all had to create our own version of 12 days of Christmas and sing it aloud. I don't know what crazy thing to expect this year, but I like that my family is always full of surprises. That is what makes my family unique.

Hillary P.

Weslaco High School

My dad is really quite at times, and I'm usually like that. My mother is really loud and talks a lot, and I talk a lot rarely. I received both of my parent's personality and expressions. My sister received my dad's personality and expressions, but my brother received my mom's. All this revolves into my family being unique based on expressions and personality.

Joseph D.

Weslaco High School

My family is unique because they are the ones who can really understand and judge me for who I am. Even though we can go through rough times with each other, I learn everyday to apologize/forgive them. Between my siblings and I, we always play physical fights, but we know we don't mean it when we hurt each other, badly. That's something that we always do. I love my family because we're weird, and that brings us closer together.

Marina C.

Weslaco High School   

My family is unique because just like any other family, they are different. They cook different, they raised me different, and they love me different. My family is a church going family. My grandfather is the pastor, my grandma is the pastor's wife and then there is my mom and my uncle. We all try to take care of each other and we also care for each other. Thus, making us unique.

Daniel A.

Weslaco High School

Many times when I am with my family I notice things that separate us from most families that are around us. My family is unique in that we do things together as a family like that usual "Brady Bunch" you would see on television. Whether it would be sitting down as a family to eat, asking for help when we have a problem, or wanting to spend time together as a family, this usually makes our bond unique because no other family has this characteristics like the old days.

Rene C.

Weslaco High School

What makes my family unique is that we are originally from Mexico. We don't have the same outlook as families from the valley do. My parents have a different way of teaching us and our culture is not the same. I go to church every Sunday and I'm involved in my church. My family is unique and special to me.

Monica G.

Weslaco High School

What makes our family unique is that we are a very loud bunch. We all live at home, even though the two oldest sisters in the family have already graduated from college and are professionals. The closeness between our family is what makes us a family. Everywhere we go, we are always together. From miles away, we can be heard even though we are only a family of six. Our family is truly unique.

Jasey C.

Weslaco High School 

Everybody has someone or something that makes their family different from everybody else. For me, the fact that my dad does leather work Also the fact that my parents have stayed together for 26 years is pretty unique to me. I also think that it is amazing how much time we get to spend together with the amount of time that we have. That is what makes my family unique.

Keanu M.

Weslaco High School

What make's my family unique are all the different characters that we have within the family. My aunts are kind of crazy in their own way, and I am pretty sure that two of them have an attention disorder. Then we have my dad's side of the family that we do not see that often, but when we do go over, there is always yelling, screaming, and everything else that a dysfunctional family should have. It is the kind of dysfunctional family that should have its own show, and that's what makes my family unique.

Eliseo P.

Weslaco High School

My family is unique because we all like to have fun and we always spend time with our family. We always have cook-outs with our family and we always have a good time. I love my family we are really cool and we have a lot of fun but not too to much.

Jason V.

Weslaco High School

Every family has something unique about them because each family is different. My family is unique because my mom and dads side of the family are from different countries. My dads family is from Cancun, Mexico and they came here in 1983 and learned the English language faster than any normal immigrant. My moms family came from Ponce, Puerto Rico and they came here in 1959. Each one of them had to take speech classes to better their English and they did and now many of them are now teaching other immigrants because they are really good English speakers. Both of my families have met many famous people like the quarterback from the Houston Texans and mainly all the players on the Houston Astros team including the manager. My family is unique because of their background and all the amazingly famous people they have met. 

Joseph M.

Weslaco High School

My family is unique because we all treasure the time we spend together and like to have bonding time with each other. My family loves to travel. We travel on almost every holiday or for our birthdays. As a family we've been to, to many different places in the United States and out. Every time we travel to a different place we've never been to we try to make the best of it, and have a positive attitude the entire time. When we don't travel we like to spend our family time at my house spending quality time together playing games or watching movies on demand. We try to cherish every moment we have together living for today.

Shelbi S.

Weslaco High School

My family is unique in a matter in which its members can insist on talking to each other when something is wrong. We can relate to one another and learn from each other's mistakes. This differs from the families that have parents that insist that they are always right. In my family, my parents and elders can accept a mistake when they see one. This is not the case when wisdom is always an excuse for the other old folks in other families.

Ivan P.

My family is very unique due to the fact that we have certain traditions. On Tuesday nights we all tend to gather around the TV. and watch a show called Scare Tactics. No matter how busy our schedules may be, there is never a time where we don't make space for family. Every Sunday we have a little family reunion and hang out.

Mariel M.

My family is unique because we share a special bond that holds us together. Even after fights and these can get pretty serious, we are still united. I think what holds us together is the fact that my grandma is still alive. I live in my grandma's house, but the others that live in their places come every weekend to be with her. She means a lot to the whole bunch. She is our little treasure and our huge connection. She means everything to us and we mean a lot to her.

Alejandra G.

Weslaco High School

My mom and dad make's my whole family unique.

My brother's and sister's we get along with my step uncle's kids. Two of his daughter's have kids. One of them has one kid the other one has 4 kids.

Beatriz M.

My parents are unique because there are no other people like my parents. There might be people that look like my parents, but that would be a total different thing. There love towards me is what makes my parents unique.

Victor H.

My family is unique by always having each others back. No matter what problems we have together we can figure it out.

Steven R.

My family is unique because we come together, and we are there for each other. When my aunt was about to lose her kids my mom (Maria Vasquez) took them in. There are 6 children in the family, along with 5 more children. That's why my family is one of a kind.

Amancio V.

Frank G.

W.B. Green Jr. High

My family is unique in so many ways. My family is unique because we all do and know how to do all the handy jobs of the house. What I mean by that is that we all cook, clean, wash and carry our own weight. When someone is in a situation where he or she needs help, we help out. Our family doesn't always eat together or share the news but we hang out or go out to places. We also fight all the time but that is what makes us unique.

Marco A.

My family is unique in many different ways. We are all able to speak Spanish and English. We are all very active. We have very tight schedules. We all play soccer and softball together. On Sundays, we go eat at restaurants. Sometimes we go to Austin, San Antonio, or Mexico. They're very loud and funny. I love them.

We laugh a lot. My dad always finds a way to crack a joke. I horse around all the time. Mom thinks we're crazy. It's true. We also argue over the comfy chairs in the living room. Dad always pulls me out.

My family is unique because we get together a lot. We usually get together at my house for the Dallas Cowboys game.

Probably what makes my family unique is we watch T.V. a lot together. We're always wanting to do stuff together. My mother went to all my football games even the far away games. But we don't always do stuff together, we fight a lot.

Jesus M.

W.B. Green Jr. High

I guess that my family is unique because we are close. My family is always having reunions. We always have one every year. Sometimes it will be for Thanksgiving or Christmas, but it's usually in the summer. Our last big reunion was in Costa Roca. My mom's two brothers, their daughters and my grandparents are the ones that always go. The trip to Costa Rica was super fun! We rented a hotel hose thing all for us. It even had an underground pool in the front that was ours too. We had a lot of fun there. The next big reunion will probably be this summer. My uncles are saying we should go on a beach vacation. I voted for Hawaii, but I doubt we'll go that far. I like my family traditions and I wouldn't change it for anything.

Andrea G.

W.B. Green Jr. High

My family is unique in one way because my parents are divorced, so I don't live with both of my parents. I live with my mom, uncle, grandpa and grandma and on the weekends, I go stay with my dad. My dad and I play guitar and he makes CD'S with his own music. My mom works with Jenny Craig and she is very fashionable. My dad was a quarterback for the La Feria Lions, so he and I practice. I want to try out for Quarterback and stay in shape. My family is one of those families that doesn't eat dinner together. Sometimes we get together at my dad's house and we watch movies.

Tristan G.

W.B. Green Jr. High

I stand today as a product of what I call, La familia. We are a unit that may not be mirrored, so perfect as if we were molded from clay. Despite our lack of what the media portrays as success, we have our own fulfillment and live rich with our own unique currency, love. If one member is struggling, the lead runners in our pack pick up the slack. As a family, we implement trust, loyalty, and sacrifice. La familia, as a whole, never fails and that is why we are like no other.

Jonathan G.

San Benito High School

My family is unique because even though we don't have a lot of money we all care for each other very much. My family is the most caring family I know and I'm proud of that.

Jacob

Rio Grande Valley Youth Recovery Program

My family is unique because these people that care for there family members but they don't show it. My family shows it and we have conversations about how wonderful I'm doing in Rehab. My family is awesome. They will get mad at me but they're still there for me no matter what. Some of our traditions every year we cook tamales on Christmas and we get a glass of wine every New Years Eve. We always pop fireworks. Most of the time we celebrate in Mexico where half of our family is, but my family is unique because they're just the best family I could ever ask for.

Jesse

Rio Grande Valley Youth Recovery Program

What makes my family unique is that my mom and grandmother are always there for me. I have a respectful and responsible family. My mom wants the best for me and that's why I came to ask for help. I get a lot of positive feedback from my family. My mom was there when I got locked up and when I was in the hospital because I overdosed. That's why I say that my mom and family are special and I love them a lot.

Jaey

Rio Grande Valley Youth Recovery Program

My family is very unique. They are some of the craziest people I know. My parents are always fighting over every little thing. My two older sisters don't even live with us anymore. I have three baby nieces from a 21 year old sister. My baby sister is crazy. She wants to control everything and last but not least me. I am a drug user I guess it's from my dad's genes, "Soy loco." And so is my family that is what makes us so unique.
