We Are Who We Come From




We are more than our parents' genes and chromosomes; we are in many ways who they were. I was blessed that the two young people above gave me far more than the gift of life: they largely shaped who I am today, and though now long dead, they are alive in me, as yours are in you.

Hi, again, Dorien-san. :)
So...these girl and boy in the photos are your parents, yes ?
Hmm, looking at their faces closely, I have come to realise you do look like both of them.
You have their kind eyes, their noble nose, and their serious, determined mouth.
By the way, that little animal held in the girls' arms...is it a rabbit ?
Kawaii( Cute ). :)

Love,
