The Osen Family

I had the opportunity to photograph the Osen family again today...or part of them I should say! In addition to their two biological and two adopted children living at home, they also have three older children who are living away from home. The only daughter living at home had this to say when asked what encouragement she would give to other biological kids whose parents are going to adopt: "It doesn't mean they don't love you. They may get more attention at first, but it doesn't mean your parents don't love you. It's just that they (the adopted kids) are new people, so they're going to need more attention." Brilliant. She's a wise young lady.
