The reunion Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
The reunion
The reunion

My daughter and her partner had been overseas visiting relatives and their 4year old son Kai stayed with me (grandmother - he calls me Emi).
The were away for 3 1/2 weeks which is a long long time in the life of a 4 year old. This photo is the first hug Kai had with his Mum when she came out of customs. I didn't think he was ever going to let her go but eventually she peeled his little arms from around her neck as she was having trouble breathing!

Many thanks to you all again for your very kind comments and congratulations - they are very much appreciated. I was very excited to make it to the final 880 contestants and this 2nd place was so unexpected! Am looking forward to getting my desktop pc back online in the near future so I can actually process and upload some more pics! Need to do an reinstall but haven't had time yet - here's hoping I will in the nest few weeks. Cheers to all - Sharon
