A man's joy is greatest when his family is with him.
Ephraim Luntshitz

We are helping children in Ukraine.

It all started when my husband and I saw wild dogs taking care of the street children.
A question came: "Does these dogs care more for the children, than people do?"
We moved to Ukraine, run a children's home "Friend's House", help children in need, underage mothers ...

Photo is a powerful instrument to tell the story. I want to learn more about photo with, looking your photos, learning and I value your honest feedback on my images.

With love to God and the children!

I like the composition : the family is a pyramid, and the road a circle in the trees.
