Mi familia
L to R:
My dad, brother Anthony, MomMom Crespo, Aunt Marilyn, cousin Eddie
Photographer: My mom

I have been given the most amazing gift by my mother.
A tattered, old box of slides of my family before I was born.
It will taken me forever to scan them all in, and I'm okay with that. Discovering my family in a whole new way has been such a great experience. 
Seeing loved ones who are now passed away, is the most precious piece of this puzzle.

There are photographs that look like art, and memories that are burned into film that I would have never known about. I've struck gold.
