Photo taken by contributor Danielle in New Jersey. She struggles with a host of mental health issues, including severe depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. She is grateful to have photography, and a loving husband and daughter who help her see color when she feels trapped in a world of black and gray.
About this photo: “There is nothing I treasure more than my daughter. What else can I say? She is my heart, my sunshine, and every other cliché in the book. I wish that I could be a ‘perfect’ mom for her. I wish I could be a ‘normal’ mom. But I can only be me… a very flawed and broken mom, who hopes that love is enough to compensate.“
