After nearly six months in our family, our 16-year-old Russian adoptee Daria is now conversant in English but still struggles to express complex ideas. She also still gets physicially tired from the effort it takes to communicate in her new language.
An outlet she has discovered that allows her to share herself without the frustration that words can be is photography. We're visiting Aaron and Anna in Ohio for the first time since they were married in March. Daria took all of the photos in this post as we spent time at their apartment last night.
