Are All Those Kids Yours?
Fostering, Adoption, Teenagers … a memoir
“Marry if you must,” warned Jonquil’s mother. “But for God’s sake don’t have kids. You’ll rue the day they become teenagers.”
When the Grahams were ‘given’ a child on their honeymoon, they decided to foster, and then, in rapid succession, to adopt nine children of their own, including two sets of twins from Russia and Romania respectively. After all, they had the perfect setting – a rambling old house in Golden Bay, New Zealand, set on a kiwifruit orchard – and hearts that always had room for one more.
