A friend posted such an inspiring photo online that I asked her permission to do a drawing of her with her new baby. Goddess Mother was done to express our connectedness to Mother Earth, the diversity of our species, and the right to love anyone of our choosing, be they the same sex, gender, and race or from a different identity. Families come in all sizes and shapes. There are so many interracial and adopted children in the world now, and not every child’s skin tone matches the mother or grandmother’s skin tone (even biological children, as in the case of one white and one black twin). I really wanted to create a card that supported the unique identities of these children and parents who are faced with a world that wants their family to look a certain way. All loving families are beautiful!
