Last week my very good friends’ daughter turned six years old and I had a great time taking part in the celebration. Grace, the birthday girl, is the daughter of one of the family’s I have been documenting as part of my long-term documentary project on alternative families in Texas. I am so impressed by the love in Grace’s life from so many people who remain open and loving toward Tracy, her mom, and Ryan, her partner. Greg, Grace’s father, is one of their biggest supporters. Tracy says it best, “Grace, at the age of six has already made us better and inspired so many of us to reach for more, to love more, to forgive more, to laugh and play more. Grace makes us more.”
Happy birthday Grace!
