Siblings -Immutable ,Gene Deep & Can’t Be Earned

NPR’s siblings series http://www.npr.org/2010/11/25/131590706/siblings-find-support-and-friendship-in-each-other covered the gene deep bond. The wonderful thing about adult sibling relationships is they are ascribed roles rather than earned. No matter how much money you make or what hedge funds you manage, you can’t earn being a sibling. You are siblings mostly because of your birth and choices your family made. You remain a brother or sister for life no matter what. This unique quality really counts as you grow older. No matter what arguments have separated you or how many years have taken the wattage out of your relationship, a sibling bond can be lit up again, all because it never goes away. It is part of your heritage, your family-you.
