The Furniss Family

The Furniss Family is made up of mom and dad and four adopted kids: Kati, 12, from Russia; her biological brother Alex, 16; Jenalyn, 16, from the Philippines; Timothy, 1, from Bozeman. This was my second visit to photograph this family and this time I was able to interview to chat a little bit about the highs and lows of participating in international adoptions of older kids. Just like the other families, they wanted to stress that this process is not easy and that anyone interested should not go into it without being prepared. Each kid has had his or her own issues, but Dave and Laura give them a loving home and a "forever family".
