National Siblings Day

I never knew this day existed till people started posting pictures of their siblings on Facebook. I therefore posted a picture of  my sister and I standing with our father in Trinidad a few years before he died. After posting the picture, I realized that it was quite unfair to not to mention my other 11 or 12 siblings.

My father was a an incredibly handsome man who had many children with many women from different parts of the world. I have not met all of my siblings, but many of us are connected on Facebook. They all seem like interesting, all attractive, but deeply affected (by this man who left messes all over the world.) I think this would have happened to Don Draper if he were a real person. 

I created a collage of some of the siblings that I do know. I am proud to be related to all of them. And I hope we can meet each other soon.
