Kazakh Brothers

We have been so fortunate to have both our boys love each other dearly. They truly have a close bond with one another. Of course, we have the occasional normal sibling altercations but they are few and far between. Recently when they were apart for two weeks they were more interested in speaking with each other on the phone than they were talking with Mom or Dad! We live in rural Colorado where the Asian population is next to none. We felt it was important for both of them to be able to look across the dinner table and at least at home see someone who looked just like them. As they have grown older this has become more important as race and skin color have become topics of conversation between their friends. Surprisingly, for living in an area that lacks much diversity, 99% of the comments have been innocent and benign statements of curiosity.
