Sibling love is out of this world and definitely incomparable to all other forms of love. With the fights, rivalries, love, sharing and bonding that have happened all through the years the time just makes it grow fonder and deeper. And hence no one thinks of separating the siblings ever.
Although the adopted children have a tough time in bonding with the family, but proper care and love sets everything apart. And so has been the idea when Lace Dunkin adopted not one or two but six little girls as their child in an urge to keep them together.
When Lacey Dunkin was of the age 25 she had known that she had to be a mother no matter if she married or not. And so when she got a call for adopting 4 girls children she did not step back.
It was the desire to experience motherhood and the love of not separating the sisters that had made her keep the babies and be their foster parent. But the real problem came in when their birth mother gained the custody back and the girls moved back to their home in 9 months.
And then there was again a life changing experience when the birth mother called in Lacey again to ask her to keep the babies but this time she had one more daughter with her. Lacey whole heartedly agreed to the gesture but the surprise was not over for Lacey.
The girl’s birth mother did inform Lacey that she had been expecting for the sixth time and that she would be wanted to keep the sixth baby with her too. The yearlong adoption was done and Lacey is finally a foster parent to six girl child. She shared a picture for Motherhood Dare on facebook citing the wonderful feeling and messy-chaos situation she lives in which is both fulfilling and lovable.
Recently, Dunkin shared a touching photo on Facebook of all her lovely daughters gathered together. She wrote:
So I was nominated in the Motherhood Dare to post one picture that makes me proud or happy to be a mom. I chose this picture.
I chose this picture not because it’s a beautiful picture, although it is, but because of the memory of taking this picture. The memory of the chaos and stress that preceded this beautiful happy picture of me and my girls.
What you don’t see is the yelling, pleading, bargaining that went on prior to this picture. The tears and whining and pouting and me flipping out saying, “all I want is one nice picture of us all, is that too much to ask???” You don’t see me asking my mom to race down to the park, me texting my sweet photographer that it’s been the “morning from hell”, or me rudely honking at a woman who was taking her sweet time to close her door so we could park. (Not my best moment).
This picture reminds me that even during the hard times, life is beautiful. That pressure produces diamonds, and that things don’t have to be “perfect” to be great.
