Siblings have more common DNA than a child does with one parent.

SO?

Your children's heredity comes from the parents not siblings

still remains at a very low 7%

Wayne has become homeless in California and is living in his car.

A big issue is that he has to stay there to keep his Medi-Cal health insurance.

He does get $900 Social Security and we are trying to help him with financial aid.

None of us know what to do and he refuses to go to a homeless shelter.

Breaks my heart -- Josh

Some people prefer that kind of lifestyle. Large cities try to place the homeless in shelters, tiny homes, homeless villages, and a lot of them refuse.

Wayne had a long time career as a travel agent and was a part-time guitarist at clubs

His work just fizzled out and he hasn't been able to adapt.

Kevin was my best friend in high school and his little brother Drew is my best friend now.

I'm very proud of Drew and he has done well. :)

Best -- Josh
