And The Kinsella Family’s Weird Pose Lives On

The family that poses weirdly together, stays together, right? That seems to be the case with the Kinsella siblings, a family that Huffington Post first visited with three years ago. For almost three decades, the Kinsellas have posed for photos in the same somewhat strange stance with the brothers on the outside and sisters with legs crossed in the air in the middle. It’s something they started doing in 1988 and they’ve struck “the pose” at weddings, multiple Major League Baseball games, their mother’s funeral, home gatherings, a tattoo shop and the penultimate photo for this baseball-loving family: the Field of Dreams site. The four siblings — three of whom live in Houston and one in Nebraska — even traveled back to their childhood home in Brick Township, N.J., to pose for a photo there.

After we wrote about the Kinsellas’ pose, they were contacted by The Today Show, Ellen DeGeneres and Good Morning America — all seeking to have the four adult siblings on the air. The Today Show flew the four to New York where they struck “the pose” for the world to see and “had a blast for three days,” said family spokesman Mike Kinsella.

Brothers Mike and Tim Kinsella and sisters Sharyn Bauer Kemper and Eileen McFarland all have identical “pose” tattoos. While no two of the siblings agree how “the pose” originated, Mike Kinsella notes, “Remember, we started taking them long before date-stamped photos.”

How does Mike explain the connection the four have — and the world’s interest in their family photo tradition? Simple, he said. “We grew up loving each other and we remain very close,” said Mike. That comes across in “the pose.” “We just have fun. We get together and always laugh. You can see it in the pose.”

He said a family reunion is planned for later this summer and the Nebraska sister is thinking of moving to Texas once she retires. The times, of course, aren’t always good. Sister Eileen just completed a 30-day treatment course for skin cancer and brother Tim lost his job at a print shop. But “we will always be there for each other,” said Mike.

And yes, there will always be more photos of “the pose.”

Losing Dad, Paranoid Schizophrenia: A Family’s Search for Hope

Losing Dad, Paranoid Schizophrenia: A Family’s Search for Hope


Losing Dad, Paranoid Schizophrenia: a Family’s Search for Hope,” is the compelling true story of a family grappling with the stranglehold of severe mental illness. The ordeal began innocently enough. “Joseph” was happily raising a middle class family in the California suburbs when he was diagnosed with cancer. The operation was successful and prognosis good until a routine follow-up procedure was botched. Doctors corrected the issue and sent “Joseph” home from the hospital, but he was never the same again. At age 53, Joseph suddenly became prone to fits of rage and hallucinations. His new and disturbing religious obsessions and proselytizing alienated his grown children and got him fired from his job, while his wife began to fear for her life. Depression, anxiety, and paranoia overtook this once-vibrant man. Frequent hospital stints and a persistent refusal to stay on medication ultimately led him to flee his home and travel the world homeless as a self-proclaimed religious prophet, eschewing wealth, belongings and family. Joseph’s colorful descent into psychosis featured a journey that stretched across thirty countries, four continents, and thirteen wives. He faced down drug dealers and prostitutes, advised the Italian Mafioso and was hailed as a prophet in Africa. Losing Dad not only features Joseph’s harrowing – and still ongoing – flight from reality amidst anosognosia, but also valuable information about severe mental illness, a crippling disease that affects 1 in 17 people and can develop inside any mind at any time. It provides a list of resources, a discussion of current mental health laws, and plenty of food for thought. The Foreword is written by Dr. Xavier Amador. “I highly recommend ‘Losing Dad’ both as an educational tool and as a heartfelt tale. Beautifully woven between the facts are the feelings. Amanda LaPera] shows that behind every severe mental illness there is a human being.” – Xavier Amador, Ph.D, Founder, LEAP Institute Author, I am Not

It’s Good to Know a Miracle: Dani’s Story: One Family’s Struggle with Leukemia

It’s Good to Know a Miracle: Dani’s Story: One Family’s Struggle with Leukemia


In this inspirational and informative book, Dani’s parents, Jay and Sue Shotel, vividly convey the strength and courage their daughter displayed in her battle with AML, as they tell the story of the events that led to her recovery. Along the way they provide a wealth of information about leukemia, and tell engrossing stories about their family’s journey to an unknown place, the roles each family member played to support Dani in her fight for life, the value of love and friendship, the anguish in the quest for answers, the power of positive thinking, the vital decisions a family must make as they proceed through the medical maze, and about the young German citizen, Tom–who donated the marrow that saved Dani’s life and then flew in to Washington, D.C., to attend Dani and Scott’s wedding in 2005! The vivid details in It’s Good to Know a Miracle: Dani’s Story, are made possible because Sue Shotel insisted that the family keep a log of everything that occurred during the period from September 11, 2002, until Dani’s release from the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and return to Washington, D.C. in May of 2003. In telling their story, the authors hope that the level of detail provided in this book will assist families who face similar circumstances in dealing with the known, the unknown, and the decisions that need to be made along the way. Reviews: “One of 10 Health Books in 2008 ‘You’ll Actually Want to Read’”—Laura Landro, Wall Street Journal “This is a book that will touch your heart as well as take you on a grueling journey with a happy ending.”—Anne Stinson, Book Critic, Easton Star Democrat Endorsements: “This is an amazing story of a woman who stayed strong in the struggle to fight (and WIN!) for her life. Her dedication, passion and insights in coping with the emotional and physical pain during her journey no doubt played major roles in her ability to ‘beat leukemia’. She is an inspiring figure and gives hope to all of us who ultimately will experience a life’s grea
