A really cool gift

This picture of Emily was taken when she about 3 or 4 months old.
My mom gave the picture to a man that lives in her building. He is a talented artist and she asked him to make a sketch of the drawing. She sent it to us just after Christmas.
He did a fantastic job! It was a very thoughtful gift and I cannot wait to frame it and hang it up.

One other detail that makes this gift even more special...the artist has Cerebral Palsy.

Oh my word! I hope this artist shares his work as a living! This is amazing talent-and what a testimony for CP! Wow! Do you have any more info on him-like how to contact him?

In awe,
