Every year around this time, I start trying to take a Christmas card photo. I know my kids are different then most. Their mama takes hundreds of photos at a time, striving for that illusive "perfect" photo. And, every year I'm a little disappointed. Last Saturday, I took the kids around to take some pictures. As you can tell in these pictures, they were thrilled and extremely cooperative.I did take a few that I like and can use. Then, I saw this one of Samuel. There is something I love about it. He has such a far away look in his eyes. He looks a little sad but I see a glimpse of hope. It's exactly where we're at in our journey right now.
