Yes they are

I'm really sick of people saying that my sister & 2 brothers aren't my real sister & brothers. I don't know how many times I've heard that. Also people saying that I'm really an only child. Let me explain. My Dad was married when he was 20, they had 3 kids & got divorced. They weren't really married too long. Not sure how long. Then he married my Mom & had me. They are my half sister & brothers, not step. We have the same Dad & are related by blood. It's just something that has always bugged me & I wanted to vent about it. This is a different pic than the 1 I posted on Thanksgiving.

Good to know! I wish I had more brothers and sisters!

People are stupid. Why do they feel they can dictate who is your "real family" and who isn't? Vent away... it's worth telling people not to tell you who your family is.

Yeah, I have steps and halves. I know how you feel. I wish I were closer to my siblings while I was growing up. We're trying to make up for it now, but I would have liked to have them around more when we were kids.

I hate it when i hear my kids, daughters by different dads, say, "you aren't my real sister!" I can feel your pain on this one! Thanks for stopping by!

Blood doesn't make you family anyway. I do see where you are coming from. Family is family. And I think you have a nice looking family. I can also see some likenesses.
