Stranger Than Family

Exhibition: May 3 – 24, 2012

“For many, hearing the word “family” brings other words to mind; mom, dad, brothers, sisters, love and birth. But what if you were flown into your mother and father’s arms not by a stork but by a Boeing 747. My siblings and I were all adopted across the pacific from the countries India and South Korea, we came from foster mothers and lonely orphanages to parents and a little home in Illinois, some of us healthy and some with life-inhibiting special needs. For at one time we might have all been strangers, but with time, love and perseverance we are fortunate to call ourselves one family.”
