I have seven siblings as well. Four brothers and three sisters. We are not terribly close but we do have a great time when we all get together. We have been spread out and getting together is a challenge. We all have our own families so when we do there are a lot of us.

I will go back to my hometown once a year to visit my parents,my siblings and my friends.It is always during year end I will visit them.so this coming december ,I will go back to my hometown with my husband and my son. My siblings always keep in touch with me by calling each other or SMS each other.Sometimes, we will chat online when we have a free time.

we are 3. am the middle in the siblings.we're close and we also have friends outside the circle. i happened to be the godmother of some of the kids of my eldest brother's friends. hope the closeness stays as long as we live and would extend that type of relationship to our descendants. :)

I only have 2 children, they are both grown ups now and have their own families. When they were young, the house was filled with deafening noises and now the silence is deafening too. I wished I could have more. LOL enjoy

I have an 4 sibilings. A older brother, older sister, a step-brother, and I have a twin brother. I have to say as kids we played together but we really had our own lives. Now that we are older we are alot closer than before and its great. My twin brother is probably who I'm closest too now. My step brother lives in Oregon so we aren't as close but he has little girls that we all love. My sister lives in Florida but talk to her on a semi regular basis. Its hard keeping in touch when everyone lives apart.

I have one elder brother. He is very understanding and whenever I face any problem, he always tries to help me out. I respect him a lot also. But, he always makes a distance and we never had friendship between us.

Hey! I have an older brother and a younger sister. I love them both dearly. We all very close to each other. My sister is my best friend and I love her dearly. I know that whenever I need someone to listen to me or a shoulder to lean on, they will be there for me. It makes me happy to know that there are other people out there that love their siblings as much as I do.

I am the oldest of 6. I have 4 Brothers, and one sister. We all live in different states, so we do not see each other all the time. but we do try and get together one time a year, and we are in contact with each other on the phone all the time. We would all help each other out if the need would be.

I have a total of 9 brothers and sisters. This includes half and step siblings. My mom had a son and two daughters before me. My biological dad had a daughter and son before me, them he had a son born to him. My adopted dad had two daughters and a son before me. Growing up, not knowing my blood dad, I was the baby. Then, after I met him I became a big sister. It's all really confusing to anyone who is not part of my family, but I look at all 9 of my siblings as being my brothers and sisters, regardless of the blood we share or lack there-of. I am close to 3 of my sisters...the other two, not so much. One lives in California, and I never really knew her. When I got the opportunity to meet her, she wasn't to my liking. She was raised differently and has a total lack of morals and values. The other sister is one that I was close to. I even let her move in with me and my family when she was going through a hard time. But she wronged me beyond belief, which led to me telling her to pack up and get out of my house. We haven't really spoken much since. As for my brothers, I love them all dearly. I don't get to spend as much time with them as I would like, but they are so special to me. I wouldn't trade them for the world. The same goes for the three sisters that I am close to. They are like my best friends. Who needs people outside of family when your loved ones are there for you no matter what?

I think that you are lucky to have so many siblings, I always wished that I had many brothers and sisters I was an online child till I was 8, and I was really happy when my brother arrived. We have always had a close relationship despite the age difference. When we were children we often played together, we invented out own games and we had a lot of fun. When we got older we listened to music together and watched films together. Now we are both adults, and we don't live close to eachother, so we can't meet that often, but we still get along really well.

I only have one younger sister. She's almost five years younger. I don't think that I can easily say that we're close to each other. I wish we were closer, but it's just not the way that it is, unfortunately. Maybe things will change someday.

we are three, two sisters and a brother. we are very happy with each other and always enjoy each others company. But sometimes the quarrels also occur but after sometimes it becomes all right. we again become the same and play and enjoy life.

I was the only son of my parents, no brothers or sisters, and I hated every minute of it. I was not able to play or share any of my thoughts or feelings with somebody close like a brother or a sister. Till I got married I led a very lonely life, because of an aloof father and a mother who will never listen to anything I say. Since I was the only child, I had a very sheltered life, and so no friends also, and a curfew was always imposed on me. I really envy you, and your family.

I only have two younger brothers, I love them as well, we get along just fine and we never argue and even if we do it is nothing we can't resolve. We do have friends in common, I know some of their friends, they know some of mine and I think that is a good thing so we can expand our social circle because one never knows when can you need a helping hand.

I am the oldest of four children. i have two younger brothers and a younger sister. I am closest to my sister. She is the youngest and we are 10 years apart. My brothers and i were always at odds with each other when we were growing up. We just couldn't seem to get along most of the time. Now that we are all adults we are closer than we were as children. My brothers were in my wedding twenty years ago along with my sister. I guess we all just had some growing up to do to learn to appreciate each other.

I have 8 siblings. 7 older half-brother and sisters and 1 younger brother. No, my half siblings and I are not close with each other. Not at all. Maybe because we didn't actually grow up together and we have different mothers and their (our) dad re-married my mom when they all have their own families already.

I am the youngest of 7. Six girls and 1 boy. Being the youngest I watched everyone move out and off when they got old enough so that's what I did also. We all go home to visit sometimes. Some more than others. We are not close and there is nothing I can do about it. Its sad. We all love one another and we are not fighting or anything like that, its just that we are so far apart. Even if there is a misunderstanding its hard to communicate and things just get lost. I had moved out of town and it was several years before anyone even attempted to contact me and see if I was fine. I know, I take some responsibility here also, but this was a very rough spot in my life and no one wants to say hey everyone how are you, I am terrible. Who knows maybe I will write them a letter now... So thanks for the discussion topic, I always love to hear about other people and their family.
