Magical Milk Pic-O-The-Week

This one will be hard to top ... ever!



A policewoman is breastfeeding a baby whose parents have not yet been found after the earthquake. During the rescue, many policewomen, mothers of 3-6 month old babies, breastfed babies whose parents either died or were missing in the earthquake.

So sad and so cool at the same time. Makes me teary as I look at my baby girl. Chinese babies have always been on my heart, and we hope to adopt one someday. AMAZING pic!!

I really enjoy reading here :)
