When I look at these images from a recent “Little Women” session I cannot help but feeling blessed beyond words, that this beautiful young girl has been part of my life for so many years. She was just a little bitty girl when I met her for the first time now many years ago, while we were living as expatriates in Brazil. She was very active and bouncy and she immediately bonded with my son and later on my daughter. I could say so many wonderful things about her and how much I love her. She is almost like a daughter to me and I truly admire her strength and convictions.
You are almost a woman sweetie. Just grow a little bit slower so that we can savor you more. We are all very proud of you and you are an incredible human being inside and out.
