It takes a village....

This is a little disjointed, and would benefit from a better writeup.

Godparents, Aunts and Uncles, cousins and grandparents have always provided a support network for parents and children, from relief childcare to answering those awkward questions too awkward for parents, and being role models. Many of us live in small communities with "found families'. Let's chat about these extended families, and the roles we can play as aunties and uncles, supporting each other, and helping moms and dads raise the next generation.

I really like this! Some of us found our sci/fi fantasy counterparts outside our "nuclear" families and many of us, i'm sure have become family to others. I think there'd be a lot of support for this.
