Just gorgeous!! .-= Heather´s last blog ..Gorgeous Birth Photos! =-.
What beautiful photographs! I find it wonderful to see such old pictures of such a timeless moment between mother and child.
So much more than worthwhile--priceless reminders of the bond that's existed and been nourished (and nourishment!) since mammals evolved into being. Gorgeous photos, too, that make me wish there were many, many more!!
