That is until I met this precious, BIG, family. Five children, a strong husband, and an even stronger wife. This family immediately took me into their lives for about two hours as they played , hugged, laughed, and wept together. A very emotional moment for me to photograph this sad occasion.
You'll never know how a heart can hang still until you hear a lil' girl say, "Goodbye Daddy ... I will miss you." Then as he boards the bus taking him to the plane that will take him to a war zone, "Daddy ... I love you! Don't go!"
