I hardly have any pictures of my niece and I together, so this picture is very rare.
I’m always the one behind the lens trying to capture the moment.
This is the day I remember as us giving a million kisses, almost like I would never kiss her again. She was so comfortable with us, we kissed our baby on the lips, on her cheeks, her little hands. Every visit I tried to drink her in, I tried to memorize every detail. I remember the way he felt in my arms, I remember the way she looked at me, like she should know me, but didn’t. Because she couldn’t.
This photo means the world to me, it’s something I cherish. I wish I could have this moment forever.
