How many planes to get me? Nine children adopted into a NZ family
by Jonquil Graham
A candid, funny and heart-warming story of a New Zealand couple who adopted nine children and fostered many more. Shocked by the plight of Romanian orphans, Jonquil flew to Romania and brought home malnourished twin girls. But she never forgot the baby she left behind. Leaving her husband to cope with the family’s kiwifruit orchard and eight children, she returned to Romania to collect Bogdan. But she never imagined the protracted nightmare ahead of her. Later, she flew to Russia and adopted orphaned 8 year old twins who longed for a family of their own.
