Don't they look like the Mexican mafia?

Portrait of a Family
Kadin gave me a photo scanner for Christmas. I can't wait to dig through all of my old memories and slowly add them to our digital files. Sabine loves looking at pictures on the computer. When I showed her this photograph of my grandparents, my mom and her siblings, she was utterly confused since she has never met my mom or my grandparents. It sort of magnified my loss of them--of her, my mom. The next night, I dreamed I was in the hospital. I was waiting and waiting for my mom to come but no one could find her. At the end, she came into my hospital room, sat on the edge of the bed and I suddenly wasn't sick or afraid anymore. It's mind blowing and beautiful and huge for me to think that this how Sabine feels about me, that I anchor her in the same way my mom anchored me. I hope Sabine doesn't lose her anchor for a long, long time.
