Why does my boyfriend understand me better than my own family?

I am a 29 year old female and have been in a relationship with a 45 year old man for almost 3 years. We met when we were both homeless and I was in a half way house for drug rehab. I was in the middle of losing my children to the state. After I lost my children I lost it. I went back to using drugs and doing anything to get them. My boyfriend knows about it and is still with me. We both have bi polar disorder and PTSD. He grew up in an alcoholic family. Why is it that he understands me and the things I do better than my own family?
