I was adopted as a baby and have never met any blood relatives, so having my son sort of felt extra special, because he would become my only blood relative, the first face I'd meet that might resemble me, that was a natural piece of me. We have a special bond and he is my heart & soul. This is a self-portrait I took of us, using the self-timer mode on my camera. Faces. Mama & her boy. Me & my four year old son, Freedom.
