You all KNOW how much I love my kids. You KNOW there isn't much of anything I wouldn't do for them.
You also know that some of them didn't come to us as cute lil' buggers, but as bigger buggers. And we love them deeply.
It's just at times we run into things that are difficult and I am stumped as to the best way to handle it. So I come to here for help, 'cause you all- my bloggy friends are THE BEST.
You never fail to help. It's one of very best things about blogging. Sharing these kiddos and their blessings with you.
The dilemma- the twins have picture time coming up and this is their last year in Middle School. So as they take the pics for the year and are putting together the year book, they are asking for- you guessed it-- baby pictures.
Something we do not have. Not a one.
So I told the kids I would "take care of it" and Chloe looked at me like I had totally lost my mind (no wonder, huh?)
And as I rack my brain for a way to help them- they want to fit in and be like everyone else these are the (crazy) ideas I think of--
I've heard of age regression pictures, Problem-I doubt we could afford them.
Send in 2 pictures of Kat as a baby- at least it's still someone in the family? Problem- they really don't look that much alike.
Pick out pics of kids from Henan and send them in. Problem- is that even legal? I don't really feel right doing that.
Ask any readers with Henan kids to compare any baby pics they have of their precious gems and if they are similar to Chloe or Chance to allow us to use them-
Problem- not sure anyone would want to do that?
I want to give the kids what they can't have. I know, I l know, I can't fix everything. But I want them to have a picture that if they chose, they do NOT have to tell anyone it isn't really THEM. And I will let it up to them, who they tell.
So they can be like everyone else. They had a beginning. I just don't have record of it:(
Any one else have any other suggestions? I'm open to them, let 'em rip.
