My name is Kelsey, and I'm a junior in highschool. I am a sister to seven siblings, five of which became a part of our family through adoption. I created this blog in response to questions I've been asked regarding large families and adoption. There are a lot of misconceptions floating around, and I'm hoping a little glimpse into our daily life as a large, Christian, transracial family, will help clear a few things up. I'm planning on asking my siblings to contribute entries from the unique perspective of an adoptee. I look forward to sharing travel stories, resources, FAQ's, and speculations with you all.
