November Photo Challenge #amsh2017 Day 2 – Family

There are 5 people in my close family. I have a husband and 3 kids. All three kids are in my heart and mind but only two are in my arms.

I have no full family photos as my Milo died before my Lilith was born. I now struggle to take photos of just the 4 of us. I want them as I know the kids will want them as they get older but I just can’t 90% of the time.

I do have a bear that takes the place of my Milo but even then it still doesn’t feel right to take the image.

As I created this challenge I am not sure why I have added a topic that is family based when my family is so hard to photograph. I think having it in the challenge is a way of sorting out my head a bit.

The photo I choose to share is one including my Milo but it is a composite of many different photos. It has and always will have my Milo at the centre. We may not be able to see him any more but he is always in our hearts.
