The past few months have been a little tough on my family. BUT, one thing we can always count on, is being there for each other NO MATTER WHAT! I am really REALLY lucky to have the family that I have. ALL 45 of us! Growing up in a small town was tough, but it was made easier with the support of all my cousins, aunts, and uncles. My grandfather or POPO, is the leader of the group and from him we ALL learned to treat people with respect and kindness. And to never give up! I am so happy I got to take the huge and I do mean HUGE family portrait of all of us.
