Yesterday I shared a very moving story with you. These images were taken back at Christmas of the same family. Meet the whole fantastic crew!
This is Lydia. I met her a few years ago, and getting to know her and her family has impacted my life in an incredibly positive way. The strength that comes from this family and their story is inspiring and uplifting.
The more I learned about Lydia, the more I knew I had to tell her story. Just before her tenth birthday, she walked for the first time. This video is small glimpse into her life.
Not truly a fair title for this post because you don't get to hear what I heard while I was photographing.
They are smiling in this first image because they saw me crying. ((I know...shocking.)) She wrote a song and her daddy plays the guitar while she sings it. Not just a give me money and buy me awesome cars teenage song, like a real, heartfelt, mature song. The more I talk about it, the more upset you'll be with me for not just recording it and posting it on here. Or maybe I did record it and you'll just have to wait to see it? :)
