Hmm, maybe I just missed this, but was there information about their birth mother and sister? That would be really interesting to people interested in adoption, especially in adoption when birth parents are still living. I'd like to hear more.

And I had a friend who had 6 kids in their family. His mother always used to say, once you go past two, it doesn't really matter how many there are. You are out of hands and eyes by then...
