FOSTER CARE AND THE EARLY YEARS - CIRCA 1993
HERE ARE A FEW SNAPSHOTS OF US AS KIDDOS IN FOSTER CARE. DIFFERENT HOMES, DIFFERENT LIVES, DIFFERENT FAMILIES, BUT ALWAYS TOGETHER. HE MAY NOT HAVE ALWAYS BEEN IN THE PICTURE, BUT HE WAS ALWAYS THERE.
VISITING PHOTOS 2010-2019
There was a long period of time from 1993 to 2010 when Nathan and I were separated and didn't see each other for nearly twenty years. No hugs ~ No interaction ~ Nothing! Up until our first visit in 2010, I had started to forget what Nathan looked like and the sound of his voice. That not only broke my heart, but it scared me because I couldn't let my brother fade into the past like just another shattered memory. Finally the time came where Nathan and I could be together. We could visit and hug ~ interact ~ love ~ laugh and just be.
As we were able to spend more time together, the fear of him fading away disappeared. Eventually we were able to take pictures and start to capture memories of our visits together. Although the situation is not ideal, we try to remember not to take it all too seriously.
We're sharing some of our favorite photos with you ~ Enjoy!
