Today we woke up with a very full house. One Afghan foster brother, one Eritrean foster brother, one Sudanese foster brother and his lovely friend, three more Sudanese friends, my mum and dad, two biological brothers and my sister.
We had breakfast, opened some presents, and Awad, one of my good, Sudanese friends…gave us a card which summed up exactly how I was feeling.
“It’s not what’s under the Christmas tree that matters, it’s who is around it.”
He could not have summed that up better for me.
