We are family....

Monday I took the girls to meet their sister...Allie. She is adorable and I'm so glad that her dad and stepmother keep her in touch with all her siblings. If we do in fact adopt to the girls, I'm going to make sure they have a relationship with all 6 siblings! Allie's stepmother Holly (who is absolutely wonderful) and I exchanged emails and I have since received pictures of all the kids. I seriously can't believe how beautiful they are....I'll try to get permission to post them here soon. I would have to ask their mom and dad...whom I have never met but might in June. Here's the breakdown...Allie lives with her father and Holly (stepmother). The next 5 children where by another man, they have all been adopted by the same family. I don't know their parents names yet but like I mentioned we might meet them in June. And then of course we have the last two, SR and SM who were by yet another man. So there are 3 baby daddy's.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around meeting so many new extended family. As I sit here and think about it my potential children have a lot of brothers and sisters. And brothers and sisters that they will have relationships with...this could mean big...I mean huge birthday parties...oy! Ok, I need to stop getting ahead of myself, anyhow...we've already been invited to Allie's 12th birthday party in June. Holly also told me that she is inviting the other 5, so if they go we will meet their parents too. All I can say is "WOW, who would have thought..." :):)

How cool! That is awesome that your kids will get a relationship with their bio sibs. That is so special!
