Family Fridays Dozens and Dozens of Crayola Box Cousins

Lori at Peterson St. Louis are hosting Family Fridays!
I'm a little tired today so I am going to do my Family in Pictures. My Family is a mixture of all Races. My Bio-Family, My Sisters Bio Family and Our Adoptive Family have all Merged. My Parents set the Foundation and did a lot of the work to raise us as accepting, loving, and peaceful people.... That Rock!!! I consider them to always sit at the head of the Table in my Heart. They have done wonderful about keeping in contact and allowing us access (at an appropriate age, me Junior High) to our Families. They maintained contact so I wouldn't have to shuffle later in life and try to figure out where I came from. I've been asked my story by a lot of Bloggers lately and I will do a post soon.

For now here is my...

I love this! It really warms my heart. THIS is what Families are made of...

So very awesome! Using photographs is such a wonderful way to share stories. Not to mention smiles are contagious.

Peterson Family said...

I so love your family and wish I could be a part of it! I think the photographs speak volumes about your family and how LOVE is the most important thing that they taught.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

(Can I be an honorary cousin or something?????)

Shana said...

Wow what an unbelievable family you have. Gorgeous photos and I love that last one too. Goes to show race doesn't matter. Everyone has the capacity to love blindly. Now if everyone just would we would be set.
