Everytime my family and I go on an out-of-town trip, I am usually the family photographer. But I always make it a point to take or request someone to take a complete family picture. This is not an easy task since most of the time, I am not satisfied with the picture taken. More often than not, I ask that person or ask Zion's nanny to re-take the shot. I guess one of the reasons for the family picture would be, when Zion grows up, I want to show him and let him feel how much the entire family loves him, despite the circumstances that surrounded his birth 3 years ago. He may lack "things" other kids have, but the things he can always be assured of is the family's love, care, and appreciation of him.
The picture was taken during our trip to Tagaytay last May 1, 2009. It was taken at the Taal Vista Hotel. May 1 was a non-working holiday so the family had planned to go on a roadtrip to nearby Tagaytay to relieve ourselves of stress and to spend some quality time with each other.
Journalling: Dear God, I thank You for entrusting me to a wonderful and loving family. It may not be the usual family setup but nevertheless, my Mommy, Lola, Lola, and Ninong has showered me with the love, joy, and affection, any child could wish for. I may lack things other kids have, but I am lucky to be part of my family. Amen. Love lots, ZION.
