A Story About A Portfolio

Six years ago this week I wrote a blog post titled, "Magnets and Portfolios". In that post I showed off some portfolios I purchased for the girl's artwork. Elisabeth was only a few months old at the time, but I bought her one as well. Honestly, I don't think I ever expected her to use it. I knew from the beginning that her handicaps would most likely prevent her from doing art projects, but I clearly remember thinking, I have to buy three.

As I suspected, Elisabeth never drew any pictures. And, as a result, that portfolio has sat - unused - in the closet. Many times I looked at it and considered giving it away, but I kept it - and how glad I am that I did! Because now I have another daughter - and now she has a place to store her art, just like her big sisters.

It's funny how life works out sometimes.
