Now that you know how we got our name, we'd like to tell you a little about our family.
There used to be just four of us. Kirsten came first, then Felicity, Molly, and Charissa. Along the way, we moved to a new home, found out some family secrets, and even found a half-sister we didn't know we had lost! (The details of this are probably another post for another day.) It turned out this lost sister, Josefina, needed a place to live, so she came to live with us!
We were afraid it was going to be weird going from four to five, because we'd all been together our whole lives and Josefina was new. (And by no means a new baby!) It wasn't weird, though. It was actually so much fun that we decided we wanted our family to get even bigger.
Pretty soon, we decided to become a foster family, so we could have more kids living with us. Evelyn was the first who came, and now she's adopted into our family. Then came Kaya. Kaya is American Indian so the rules for custody were different, but now our family are her guardians. It's a different word, but it means the same thing... we're all sisters now!
Do we have a big enough family? We don't think so. But families can't grow all at once. As time goes by, we'll have more people living here that we can love. (Actually, we may have a "surprise" soon; we'll keep you posted!) For now, we're having fun day-to-day. Sometimes things get pretty chaotic here, and sometimes we fight, but at the end of the day, we're sisters... and we couldn't be closer.
