I Heart Faces - Hands-On-Fun

This week at I Heart Faces, the contest category is "Hands-on-Fun." The photo doesn't need a face in it this week. I chose this photo of my kids' hands. They love to play the 'hand game' where the person on the bottom pulls his/her hand out and puts it on top, then the next one goes, and so on. My dad taught them this game and they love to play it with him. Next time we see him, I need to take a photo of that!

I Heart Faces, "I Wanna Dance," Theme

This week's theme at I Heart Faces is "I wanna dance." Here is my entry.

My daughter was born with a foot that is turned sideways because there is no ankle bone. Her leg bones are also much shorter in that leg than her other leg, so she walks with a significant limp. She will be having her foot amputated later this year and fit with a prosthetic. Her limb difference doesn't keep her down! She still loves to dance. One day her older sister dressed her up in this ballet outfit and she began twirling around the room with exuberant JOY. I grabbed my camera and started shooting. She is proof that we can choose to be happy in spite of our circumstances. For my sweet girl, my wish is, "Never lose your sense of wonder and I hope you dance..."
