Take two people, with their hearts wide open, push them to their limits of sleep deprivation & demand, & you have a knowing, an understanding, a pure, raw connection that is a blessing to witness. Thus are emmy & aaron. Forever changed by the wonders that are their beautiful daughters, finley & hazel. Dear friends, honest & brave & full of fun & so much caring. ItView full post »
