Family tree in full bloom


Added 05 January 2013


Starcom Network and Facebook are responsible for bringing two siblings together for the holidays, the latter helping them meet online and the former facilitating their face-to-face meeting. Alicia Graham is one of last year’s Starcom Network’s Home For The Holidays winners. She said she entered the competition after finding her brother Dabian Allsop online via Facebook and getting to know him. Their story is an inspirational one, with the pair thankful to finally connect and put all the pieces of their family together. The pair met Christmas Day in a true Christmas fairy tale. Here, Dabian Allsop (left) and Alicia Graham embracing. (CA)
