This promises to be a BIG year for us in the sibling department, one way or another. We already have pretty much every permutation of ‘siblingness’ in the family that you can imagine. Not content with that, we are keen to add ‘adopted’ to the list of combinations, and 2014 will be the year that it happens.
The adoption of siblings, the integration of siblings with siblings, and the journey of our children as 6 step/half/blood/adopted siblings become one family unit, is sure to be an interesting one.
This picture was taken at the moment we told the children we’re off to the USA for a major pre-adoption family treat, and our probable last holiday for some time. Seems like a good place to start this new Linky theme, and I will fumble with the dilemma of how to handle the rest of the year over time. Sharing images of adopted children who have a need to protect their identities is not a straightforward issue, so much contemplation will be required in order to reconcile a life of blogging and photography with a need for pixelated faces. Creative advice most definitely welcomed!
