More Yousuf, by popular demand

Ok, so I've received enough hints lately to get the picture: We want more Yousuf photos! This blog is called "Raising Yousuf", after all. I'll admit, I've been lazy about that lately, namely because I've purchased a new laptop and have not yet gotten around to transferring all the photos. But I'm getting there.

So here, I present to you a few of Yousuf's latest photos, from the late summer on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, far, far away from Gaza. Enjoy!

A picture worth a thousand words.

The kite is air-borne, as Yousuf and his cousin Zade pray for a miracle to keep it afloat

Dear Laila,
In the past days I have been reading your blog from the beginning. I am so happy to have found it and to know that women like you are showing the reality of Gaza. All the best and I will keep reading.
Yousuf is GORGEOUS!!

You have a handsome son indeed. I love the photo with his grandfather, so earnest--and the ocean beyond. May your family prosper (and may you get some rest in your travels)
