"It was so obvious that myself and my sister were different growing up that it was almost insulting when well-meaning friends would ask:
‘when did you find out you were adopted?’
I want to convey the silliness of that question but also the love behind what made me how I am today.
The grand Chinoiserie arrangement is my chaotic but full and lavish life – I certainly haven’t suffered!
But look closely – and there is a Caucasian mother with a dark baby; what the??!!" - Gabby Malpas
