Laica is six years old, but new to the family: she had just been adopted less than five weeks before this picture was taken. When she was adopted, she was skittish and skinny and stayed far away from strangers. When I took these pictures it was next to impossible to get a good one because she kept trying to crawl into my lap or lick the camera or run circles around her dad and me. She was just the happiest thing ever.
