Blue Skies and Slides

Posted by
Jules (Drayton, United Kingdom) on 29 October 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I have selected this image for the "World Diabetes Day" theme. My Mum developed type II diabetes in the latter part of her life. Sadly she never met her granddaughter as she passed away in the morning of the very same day we learnt my wife was pregnant with Tegan.
