A mother comforts her child; 26 Nov 2009.
They are both old friends of our’s.
In the emotion of the moment, the mother’s eyes close and her lips part slightly to murmur soft comfort and reassurance.
And, to me, the baby’s anguish is reflected in the widely splayed hand that desperately clutches her mother’s neck – and especially in that little thumb.
