"Unofficial" nieces and nephews - March 7th 2018, 01:10 AM

I'm just wondering how many of you have "unofficial" nieces and nephews? These are the children of close friends who you claim as your nieces and nephews.

I do this!

Right now I have a niece and soon-to-be nephew from a friend, and another soon-to-be nephew from another.

And of course my biological niece.

My god-niece and god-nephew. It's not an official term, but my sister is both their god-mother. I have pretty much watched both of them grow up into the young individuals they are today. I can't believe the older one is about to turn thirteen! And of course, my biological niece.

Mm, I don't have any "unofficial" nieces or nephews, but I am one to my dad's best friend! c: They aren't related in any way, but I still consider him an uncle and he sees me as his niece

I have that too! There's one person my mom went to high school with and my dad went to school with her husband so they're my aunt and uncle and their kids and grandkids are my cousins.

I just have a biological nephew and he is adorable. I miss his smiles and laughs (brother and I live hours away).

I don't have official or unofficial nieces or nephews. I do have cousins that are five and twins that are three and the age difference we have kind of does make them feel like a niece or nephew in a way if that makes sense.
