Love makes a family and adoptive families are just as real as non-adoptive families. I believe this to my core. Even so, adoption makes a family unique. Adopting while pregnant is even more unique.
We have the privilege of raising virtual twins. We call them “almost twins,” “twins of sorts,” or “twiblings.” What this means is: two siblings who are not biologically related, whose ages are within 9 months of one another, and are made siblings by adoption or birth.
Raising virtual twins is all I know when it comes to raising kids; I have a group of mama’s who are walking this journey with me who have helped me piece together the hard, the unique, and the joy of it all.
