Is there any place where they sell Family Portraits? And, are they ever going to make more similar episodes/albums? -Submitted by Nagem
The Family Portraits episodes began as a test series of 13 episodes to see if audio drama could be used as a safe alternative to many forms of entertainment... and it was! Some fans have argued that AIO should release a special Family Portraits collection, but I personally believe that the episodes would present a less-than-professional first impression of the series. The episodes are not at the standard that Adventures in Odyssey is in terms of writing and sound design. Family Portraits is certainly a thing of the past.

Fortunately, A Member of the Family was released in The Adventure Begins, the first collection of AIO episodes. It introduces Whit's daughter Jana, as well as her son Monty.

Two other Family Portraits are included in albums. The Family Portraits episode, Whit's Visitor, is available as a special bonus feature in Album 9, Just in Time. Also, The Letter is available as another bonus feature in Album 14, Meanwhile, in Another Part of Town. So in essence, Family Portraits lives on... or at least part of it.

If you're interested in finding a rare copy of the original Family Portraits album, good luck. Your best bet may be to keep your eyes on eBay. You never know. Someone out there may be trying to auction it off to the highest bidder.
