As I general rule of thumb, I try to stay away from describing children with words that only point out their physical attractiveness. I just want to find something deeper in them and for them to read about themselves in the future, and for them to see something more than a cute face. But when I saw this photo of Aaron – all I could think was how darn handsome and ADORABLE he is! Doesn’t this four-year-old face just melt your heart?! I know I cannot be the only one.

Without a doubt, the holiday season is a time when all of us think of family. We try to come up with the perfect gifts for those we hold dear, count down the days until loved ones return home, and miss so terribly those we can no longer see and hold.
