I’ve been working on an update post about Dominic for almost a week but he’s been sick with a mild case of the flu and was out of school most of the week. So I promise it’s coming! We are on week 2 of the Strattera and I’m seeing an improvement, especially with the angry outbursts and impulsiveness. He was feeling better on Thursday and volunteered to do a photo shoot with me. Volunteered! It’s been months since I’ve photographed him all by himself. We had thick, gray overcast skies so I didn’t get great light, but we had a ton of fun. I’ll share his session on the blog soon, probably Monday, but for today, I chose this close-up of his eyes. The theme this week for My Four Hens is light. You can see my silhouette in his pupils but my favorite part is the crinkles around his eyes. Those crinkles are a result of a huge smile. I’ve missed that smile! And oh boy, does this melt me. Seeing your child so unhappy for so long is heartbreaking and it’s been a wonderful gift to see Dominic coming back to us. There is a light in his eyes that shines from his soul. LOVE. <3
Thanks for looking and check back soon to see more of Dominic’s photos and read the comprehensive update about his ADHD, depression, and all the assessments and evaluations. Thanks again for your support!
