Share the Joy Thursday

Today Meri asks 

JOY was given to me by 
having the opportunity to photograph this family
of beautiful people,
family reunion of Kwaku and Barbara Bediko

Family faces are magic mirrors. 
Looking at people who belong to us, 
we see the past, present and future. 
We make discoveries about ourselves.
