Jeg elsker å ha en stor søskenflokk. Drømmen min er å kunne få mange barn selv også! Jeg lurer på om det kan være en sammenheng mellom det å ha mange søsken, og det å ønske seg mange barn. Og vice versa. Hva tror du?
Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet.
A sibling may be the keeper of one’s identity, the only person with the keys to one’s unfettered, more fundamental self.
Our siblings push buttons that cast us in roles we felt sure we had let go of long ago – the baby, the peacekeeper, the caretaker, the avoider…. It doesn’t seem to matter how much time has elapsed or how far we’ve traveled.

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other’s hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.
