"It is certainly less serious [for parents] to deny their children certain comforts or material advantages than to deprive them of the presence of brothers and sisters, who could help them to grow in humanity and to realize the beauty of life at all its ages and in all its variety."POPE JOHN PAUL II
I just read this quote, and it touched me. In this world, people think you are crazy to have more than your 2.2 children (and the number is probably getting even smaller), and this is a reminder that this is the best thing I can do for my kids. I may not be able to (or want to for that matter) give them the latest fashion, or the latest toy, but I can give them each other, and that is priceless.
I hope you don't mind if I go down memory lane a bit. None of these pictures are recent, but I randomly went through my pictures picking out some of my favorite sibling pictures (of my kids).
