    This is beautiful Karen. I look into this fathers face – and see the look of my son to his child… so tender and precious…
    And the beautiful babe lost in a little world of its own – oblivious to the way it has touched a heart!

  • Isn’t that so true Sharon – there is nothing so strong as the love of a parent!!! :)
