Oh, a complete heartmelter! He's so very tiny against Mom's big hand! Have to agree with Deb - everything is perfect - a hands-down winner for certain!

What a beautiful series Kathy of mother and child, a definite winner in my books and as far as I'm concerned they all deserve gold.

WOW, Kathy! This is a phenomenal series and you hit a home run with this one! Have to agree that everything about it says Winner! Sorry I've been absent - had a very busy September. Were these all taken at SD zoo or WAP (or whatever th3e new name is)? They are truly wonderful!
