|There were, I believe, about nineteen families represented|
|Of course, the kiddies had no trouble mixing|
|Getting them all to stand still long enough for a group photo was a challenge. What you can't see is a platoon of parents with phones and cameras. And notice a certain little girl standing out front...|
|Caroline shares the same birth month and year with these two little girls. I think that little A (on the right) looks much like Caroline, though she is from a different province|
It's good to know that there are (relatively) so many adopted children in the area. I think that all of us parents hope to keep the kids in touch with each other in the years to come. Adopted children, especially international adoptees, are something of a unique minority, and I think it is important for them to grow up around other kids who understand what it's like to be "somewhere between".
