Clove Jumping Into Pool

My 6 year old daughter Clove, who happens to have Down syndrome, jumping into a pool on a summer day clutching her Mermaid Barbie. Her pure expression of joy, freedom, and feeling like anything is possible captured in a single magical moment. And my hope as her mom, that she always feels this way.
