    When she suddenly arrived two months early and had to stay in the ICU, my vision of her meeting her older siblings for the first time were shattered. They don't allow children in the ICU. I imagined a tender moment in the hospital and faces of fascination across the room. Instead, they waited for three weeks in anticipation of their baby sister coming home. When the day finally came, they couldn't wait to see her, touch her, hold her and just be together.

    This is an odd image that grabbed my attention and held it. Compositionally it is interesting with a mix of symmetry and asymmetry. The gentle touch of the hands takes the whole thing to another level. Love it!
