Thank you so much for writing this article. I am an aunt like you. The day my niece was born, I felt like I had this whole new and amazing responsibility. I've sacrificed so much for them. I know they love me, but in my case, I think my sister-in-law might not like that so much - it's a long story. However, I love that there is an aunt day, 26 July! I will remember that and share it. My cousins once said that I should give lessons on how to be an aunt. Maybe we should team up. Every child needs a good aunt, at least when they want to run away from home :) I think we need to start a movement! I really do.


Born in Bosnia, grew up in the UK-another war child, yes. Passionate about people and the state of society. A bit of a maverick.
