See this > answer to a related question <. In short, it would be okay in informal speech, but to be formally correct, you'd have to say "my family and I".

Because my family and I ... in the subject part of a sentence (or because of my family and me in the predicate).

However, your sentence has issues beyond that.

Because my family and I lived our whole lives in America, we have no intention of moving anywhere else. We will only go to China to visit.
