  • “Does Kelly Jo ever visited her adopted black Sister sometimes? Or does She forget about her?”
  • “I’m sure it’s not like sisters as they weren’t raised together Kelly probably more like an aunt to them.”
  • “They live out of state so they don’t see each other often but they seem to have a good relationship. They are 20 years younger and weren’t adopted until after Kelly left home so I doubt they are super close.”
  • “The sister and her family have been in the background at many of the weddings. I don’t think Kelly is especially close to her family, but it seems like they have a friendly enough relationship.”
