DEAR CODY and BENSON

 My youngest sister arrived soon after this picture was taken.
This picture was taken not long after I had my 7th birthday. 

I have 6 brothers -
well 7 actually if you count my foster brother.
He came to live at our house when I was 11.
He was 10.

Four brothers are older than me.
The others are younger.

I also have 3 sisters.
They are all younger than I am.

I like having lots of brothers and sisters.
They are my very best friends -
even if we get mad sometimes.
We still love each other.
We still help each other.
We still watch out for our siblings.

Now we are grown up we live far apart.
I miss them a lot.

Giggles! I think my Uncle Duane had trouble getting a nice picture of all of us.
But I like this one. I am almost 10 years old in this picture. 

My brother Tim is one year older than me.
I am 1 year and 3 days younger than he is.
Sometimes we got to celebrate our birthday together.

When we were little he was very sick.
When he got better it was very hard for him to do lots of things.
He had to work harder than everybody else.
Sometimes it took him a long time to do things.
We were in the same grade at school.
He is very special to me. I love him very much.
He is a good example to me.
He is always very kind to others.

I hope you love sharing your birthday with each other.
I hope you are always kind too.
Having a brother to share things with is very nice.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
I miss you too.
Love Grandma
