We want to be open because we want to educate [people] about [adoption]," Gretchen said. But it has allowed people to come in to support us. As the family - apart from Tanya and Torrey, who are studying overseas - congregated in the Ryans' living room, there is no mistaking they are in every sense of the word a family.
The siblings talked about washing the car to get more pocket money, of writing up budgets - something their banker father insisted on going through with each child, outdoor hikes, games and sports.
Jeff, 55, said it was tough when the couple found out that their son Torrey had cerebral palsy. At six months, the couple detected odd behaviour and MRI scans confirmed there was brain damage.

We didn't need to go through with the adoption, but [Torrey] was already living in our home and part of the family, so there was no question about it," said Jeff.

But I think that it helped make me want to have more visibility so that my daughter could find me. I always hoped that we could reconnect. He also has five other children by his second wife, the artist Justine Wheeler, who once worked as one of the hired hands at his studio. He is now not just financially secure but deeply settled, and consequently at ease with the world, even if he still appears — at least to those who don't know him — slightly estranged from himself.
