Child 1 had her final rehearsal for panto tonight and as it was a short one and the husband was out watching the football child 4 came along for the ride. As usual he charmed everyone and had a lovely time exploring the stage, the props and joining in the singing and dancing. On the way home child 1 said that one of the cast had said how alike she and her brother looked. I asked if she had explained that he was adopted and she said no. She went onto explain that she didn't feel the need to tell anyone about child 4 being adopted and actually she didn't want to because it changed how people viewed the relationship between her and her brother. People didn't need to know he was adopted, child 4 was her brother and that was just the way it should be.
