Wes Adamson once said, “Sisters and brothers just happen, we don’t get to choose them, but they become one of our most cherished relationships.” Adamson understood the significance and importance of the sibling relationship and bond. Not only do I understand his quote, but my life is a prominent example of his quote. I didn’t choose triplet siblings, they just came into my life.
