us lately

sway

our girl

us

say what?

hello

white for her

our other little girl

fly

leisurely walks with family in the unusually dry heat of summer that settled in early this year. trips to her favorite park. neighbors stopping to say hello with smiling dogs. hugs and hand holding and dinners out, when we can. jiji finding her place in this family and our hearts... ransom, beating all odds and still with us 8 months later, permanently etched in, like a tattoo, like an artery, like morning and evening light.

life is not without its struggles or its (sometimes quite overwhelming) ups and downs. but when i sit back, looking at this collection of photos, there is only gratefulness inside of me for the gifts i have received in my life.
