I am a middle child. In both age and number.
I have four older half siblings, one younger brother, and three even younger half siblings. They are all dear to me! <3
I also have another older half brother, who drowned in an accident before I was born. I always knew he should be there and missed him terribly. My older siblings are quite a bit older than me, and he would have been pretty much as close in age as I am to my younger brother. Someone wise and older that would be there. I tried to be a wise older sibling to my brother, I don't know if he was terribly impressed ;)
My family is important to me for all of me having little contact with them. From a starting point at an island off Norway's west coast we have spread around the globe. Must be genetic.
So anyway, this is for my siblings, all nine of them: Love you all!
