And all of a sudden the people were back! Six months after the first incident, once again without prompting or anything to explain this timing, she started drawing people. And this time they were not just random faces, but the people she knew very well – our family!

We just sort of live and see. It so happens, that today we made another little ‘first‘ in the flow of our ordinary days. Continue reading
