This family is just about as good as it gets: Johanna, Jan ♥
, Sandra & Christian. It's always a great joy and huge honor spending time with them. Unfortunately, our favorite Australian restaurant closed. Now we have to find a substitute in order to enjoy each others company with great food and lots of toasting :) Sandra & Christian are some of the sweetest and most loving people I have ever met. And they have the biggest hearts! They always go the extra mile and help raising down syndrome awareness. Last year in March, they organized our exhibition "Außergewöhnlich: Väterglück"
in the Walldorf City Hall in order to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day. Two years ago, my publisher David Neufeld and I were completely over the moon with joy when Sandra & Christian organized at their local printer 2.000 additional copies of our Wall Calendar "A little extra"
and had them distributed to pregnancy counseling offices in Eastern Germany. How flippin' awesome is that!!!!!?? But like David said yesterday: "Little by little does the trick." If every single one of us gives his pediatrician, gynecologist, speech therapist, kindergarten (the list goes on and on) just ONE calendar ... There is no one giant step that does it. It's a lot of little steps ..... We can ALL make a difference in this world!
Please fall in love with this beautiful family and have a HAPPY THURSDAY!
Jan is such a charmer! He knows his way around and conquers everybody's heart in a heartbeat!
I fell in love with this pretty girl when she was a mere seven days old. That is when I photographed her for the first time. Since then Johanna is blossoming into a very beautiful girl and little princess who loves dressing up, golden glittery shoes and ballet. She's pretty wild at heart and keeps Daddy in good shape, cause she loves goofying around and being thrown into the sky really really scaringly high :).
Sandra is a school teacher, and one of the most gracious, generous and beautiful women I know. I am absolutely smitten by her.
