When God made families, he made them so that each person would feel loved, feel supported and be celebrated.
God has chosen you to be a part of His family. When you say "Yes" to Jesus, God has everything already for you, because he knew you were coming. And as a member of God's family, you have lots of Christian brothers and sisters all over the world.
These sisters and brothers aren't perfect and make many mistakes. God didn't choose them because they were star athletes or prize-winning scholars or even that they were really nice people. Just like you, when these folks accepted Christ, they could celebrate a new life and a new family.
