One night they took a ride on their magic carpets and up ahead they saw them, others like them but not exactly like them. They were curious, excited, wary, nervous, but most of all welcoming. They flew over and greeted them, exchanging greetings and asking questions, wanting to know as much as they could about the others. They had much in common and a lot of differences.
Excitedly they chatted, began to get to know each other and realised that even in their differences there was wonder and happiness. Some new things to learn, new experiences to hear of and to share together. Opinions to be valued and discussions to be had. Things to teach and things to learn. People of different cultures and lifestyles to be valued and loved.
They decided they would stay together, listen to each other, learn what they could do to help, share and grow together. They became another family, all of them together. Yes they would surely have their differences, they would disagree, and argue and discuss and compromise and learn and grow, and if they really tried they would grow together as well. Accepting each other and helping each other. They were beginning to see that a family is not just one colour, one style, one place but it was many and they were excited.
