Day 44: Family matters! Our families teach us, care for us, and support us. Today, we're inviting you to think about what family means to you. Check out this StoryCorps interview of Guy Bryant , a man who opened up his home to foster kids and created a family legacy.

Guy's family grew with an open heart and open home. By showing support, compassion, and generosity, Guy established a family fueled by love. As Guy notes, family is simple if you have the space in your home and heart.

This interview was produced by  StoryCorps , an audio recording organization dedicated to preserving and sharing humanity's stories in order build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world. We love their inspiring work!
