Finley Frost

She came after the dawn of the first sunny day in weeks.



Mama worked hard.


There was meconium...


but it washed right off and sucked right out.


More sunshine in the way of Dr. Guido, who some call an Adirondack version of Dr. McDreamy.


Then she was in my arms...


And forever in my dreams.


Welcome home, Fin.
