self portrait tuesday

february's challenge is "introduce yourself"

hi! i'm dawn
week III

when steve and i decided to have children, we decided to screw only one child up in this lifetime. it was a conscious decision and the right decision for us for many reasons. the responses from people regarding that decision have stung at times, but we're complete as a family of three regardless.

our girl is about to turn 21 years old and she's already begun a life of her own. and steve and i are still friends.
that's really nice.

sometimes my hand is in the middle, sometimes it's steve's and sometimes it's justyne's. but whoever has their hand in the middle, you can be sure that the other two will always surround that hand with our own to support, to love and to nurture.

my family of three.
incredibly important to me.
