Shifting, I pushed my focus to the joy in my life, clinging to the present, while keeping thoughts of overwhelm at bay.

    There are only a handful of pictures of Ryan, five years of memories frozen in time of a little boy who we never saw grow to be the young man of 32 today. These photos stir up moments of the past with a smile and a tear, as I reminisce the life we once shared.
