Who's snoring now? Just the blog, not us! In the past year, my daughter has added two children to our family. The first was adopted and is 11 months old. Her birth-parents are from Eastern Africa. The second related by birth is 2 months old. Someday she will have to ponder that her sister can have 2 sets of parents: adoptive and perfect birth parents, while she is stuck with the reality of only one set, who probably won't be perfect. :-/
Being adopted myself has given me some insight into the imagination of adopted children. When my daughter was born, she was the first biological relative I had ever seen. And she was even more perfect than my imagined birth-parents. Life is magical.
