Through a child's eyes

This morning I told my eldest that today would have been Poppy's birthday.
With the clarity of a child, he said, "It still is, Mommy."

To celebrate his birthday, the boys each sent him a note on a balloon.

To celebrate his life, please vote for my dream assignment! This is a photography contest with the winner receiving $50,000 to make their dream assignment a reality. Mine is to donate the $50,000 to Addi's Cure and then document the results. Please check it out, vote for me and pass it on to your friends and family. There are only two weeks left!
