I'd like to thank my brother, my sister-in-law, and my niece Miss B, herself, for the permission to upload this photograph!

It is a photo I took this past Thanksgiving 2009... and then worked on later, just after the new year in January 2010.

I worked on it in this way to render it a little bit olde fashioned, because when I was watching and listening to my niece read at this time, I was transported back in time,
to TWO time periods:
to the days and many years when I taught children to read, as well as to my very own childhood and my love of reading! :heart:

Go Miss B! :w00t:


For those who wonder, I have four nieces. Two are adopted and two are biological, but it does not matter as far as love goes! :shrug: :heart:'s = :heart:'s

One of the adopted is in Germany. I've only been able to see her once in person, though, however I guess I should be GLAD that I've been ABLE to see her once! It was the Summer of 2006, when I was last in Europe. :nod:

The other three are with my bro and his wife in Arizona, which is still kind of far, but a lot closer than Germany! :lol:
One is adopted and other two are biological. Miss B., is biological and is the youngest of all. :rose:

I have one nephew, too. He's young and also adopted.
Currently, he's abroad, too. I got to spend time with him when he was here, though. :aww::heart:

I am blessed that I have known this many children to call me "Aunt" or "Tia"- I know it's a gift that I don't take for granted. :cuddle:


[NOTE: I just wanted to say, in advance, how especially grateful for anyone's :+fav: I may receive for this image. :thanks::aww::rose: I am honoured that you would enjoy or think well enough of my work here, to :+fav: it. :nod: So I thank you :thanks: profusely, and from the bottom of my heart :heart: . And because I do realize time constraints all too well, I understand, if you are unable to also leave a comment. :aww: However, whichever you may do, [or even both! :omg: ] I genuinely appreciate it beyond measure. I need you to know this now, in case I'm not capable of doing individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, which I've not been capable, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
:love: And even if you just came to view! :eyes: I am also very HAPPY :D for this! :w00t: ]

Hiya great photos wondering if I could use this image for a leaflet on parents and the importance of language and reading to children for my uni course? You will be credited.

Thanks :)
