A Banana, 3 Clementines, a bowl of grapes and 4 Kiwis

We never told the boys that the 'meat' was not real and not knowing the difference they were wonderfully oblivious.

There and then I said to myself, I am not going to create my second child from scratch. I am going to adopt one of those children. I never ever let go of that feeling and determination.
