To get my mind of this rough day, I decided to participate in this week’s challenge at i heart faces… play! This is a photo of my daughter, Anna, if you don’t know her. She is nine years old and has PDD-NOS, a form of autism, so play skills are not natural for her. I created a box of dress up clothes and accessories when she was five to encourage make-believe play, but she never really took to it. Recently, we got the box out again, and to my delight, she started dressing up and playing pretend. She’s still not great at making eye contact, especially for photographs, but I love love love this photo of her! After days like today, I need to remind myself of this sweet smile.
Thanks for looking!
