I photographed my daddy because he is my best friend. He makes my heart happy and he makes me feel happy. Daddy is like Christmas. I like to chase him and play monsters but I also like to play drums with him. I like to read stories at night with him. I’m proud of him because he helps people and helps us in soccer. He fixes Popo’s mailbox. Daddy loves Jesus. “I Love You Daddy because you make time for each one of us! You’re the Best Daddy in the Whole Wide World!!”

I am happy.
I can play drums.
I will be just like my daddy.

Jamen is my son and he took my photograph. He is a social butterfly who loves everyone. He has a way about him that brightens up the day and he is my constant reminder of God’s love for us. It is unconditional, always forgiving, never holding a grudge and always looking to help others. I am proud of Jamen because even though he is reluctant at times to try things he presses through them to accomplish new tasks. In whatever profession he chooses, my dream for Jamen is that he enjoys the journey in life, learns from his mistakes, overcomes all obstacles and keeps his heart loving toward others. “Jamen, thank you for the constant reminder that there is always a silver lining in every situation.”
