When M. asked me to take her daughter’s First Communion pictures, I had no idea what a treat I was in for. As a mother I know how tempting it is to wrap our children in a protective bubble, but here was a child who was allowed to explore her world – to run barefoot in the grass and walk on her hands. Freedom . . . what a gift! V. is a beautiful and clever little girl and someday, she’ll be an amazing woman.
